Lullabies for Falling Empires (NYC)
Lullabies for Falling Empires is a NYC-based collective orchestra. Richard Webb and Carlos Esparza formed the project, featuring strings, guitars, harp, voices, and elecronics, in Seattle in 2009. Performances are accompanied by the hypnotic film and video work of Leo Mayberry (Degenerate Art Ensemble) and Amanda Long (BK based video artist).Their stunning ambient soundcapes show influences including Philip Glass, Johann Johannsson, Sigur Ros, Gamelan, and West African music. Their new CD, Lullabies for Falling Empires No.1, was engineered mostly in one take in a giant wooden barn, and mixed and mastered by long time friend and cohort Jherek Bischoff (Dead Science/Degenerate Art Ensemble)
"...Rolling landscapes and bass heavy cinema with romantic hints at crumbling empires and cities re-imagined."
