Infernum Public

While Infernum is 100% an electronic work, its surface texture recalls acoustic instruments in real spaces — transformed and heightened in ways only possible through digital means. Fleeting moments of nervous calm alternate with a terrifying wall of brass glissandi (up to 60 trombones!), creating the effect of a fear-response oscillating between the conscious and subconscious.
