Emotional and intense, composer Frank Horvat gives his audience the time and space to reflect in our fast-paced world. His compositions tell deeply personal stories while permitting audiences to ponder their own. Whether he writes for his band, the concert stage or film/TV, his music is both aggressive and introspective. It digs into your heart and soul with a driving minimalism and a haunting reflection. Frank’s compositions are based on social injustices as well as the wondrousness of life, love. and longing. This minimalist and loop-oriented chamber music album creates a captivating effect by re-creating an electronic looping effect associated with electronic music with only the use of a single acoustic instrument or family of instruments in each piece. Each track’s timbre is unique as the album moves from harp to clarinet, percussion, piano and human voice.
