'pyre' is the first collaboration between Clem Turner and Ian Burke, two best friends who grew up making music in Ableton individually before coming together to form 'dirt'.
'pyre' consists of words, sung or spoken, about anxiety, confusion, fear, or desperation. these words are placed on top of a mishmash of acoustic and electronic instruments that either shine with a piercing light or collapse in on themselves in a distorted manner. the instrumental is influenced by the work of Son Lux, Cosmo Sheldrake, Sufjan Stevens, San Fermin, and others.
thank you for listening!
