I hear part of an Eve Hart interview in the background . She was a Titanic survivor and was just a child when about the ill fated voyage .

The chills tho as the music seems to continue underwater...
While the actual band wouldn’t have been able to carry the tune into the sea, the thought of them playing their final notes before deciding (or being forced) to let go of the instruments is haunting...


They say they kept playing until they died

Joseph Strausman

You can see the big influence on Stars of the Lid, for sure

Alberto Gutierrez



Very much .

Bob Green

I have read that it is a representation, maybe partly fantastical, of the band playing as the ship went down, and this is why at times the sound becomes progressively more muffled, as if heard underwater, almost as if somehow the band managed to play on until the ship came to rest on the ocean floor. But yes, it is brilliant, sad and beautiful.

I was so blessed to have witnessed this piece being played. It was a truly changing experience.


Extraordinary music endeavor! Perhaps a subtle interpretation of Amazing Grace. Either way, this is amazing music. not easy to listen to, and very haunting considering the tragedy and its consequences. as you hear it, you are almost there, a passenger upon that ship, a soul slowly being lowered to the bottom of the earth and sea, at the same time lifted and guided up to the heavens. you are resigned, and it is easier.


What is the talking that starts up at around 2:30 ?
