Jack Hooker: Vela - VIDEOEmbedded video
See details ➔
Vela is a homage to vast, open and high-up spaces, and narrates a satellite caught in an oncoming storm.
Vela is written for Tesla Coil and fixed audio, with the Tesla Coil in a sense acting as a featured soloist. The fixed audio element of Vela features large synth textures, abrasive percussion and an array of sound recordings. Musically, the piece is a continuation of the dark, cinematic style of the music Jack has been interested in recently.
