Australian instrumentalists Rebecca Daniel and Fiona Joy Hawkins place this insight on the back cover of The Lightness of Dark to illuminate their creative and spiritual vision behind the project – their first dual album after many years of live, and studio collaborations. The two explore the many facets of life and loss, the search for something positive in the crippling shadows and the potential beauty that can emerge from mourning and sadness.
Recorded in Australia for Piano, String Quartet (Kanimbla Quartet) and voice, the album focuses on the way forward and the exploration of lightness within the dark. The album weaves its lush, cathartic narrative via music with varying instrumentation depending on the emotions Fiona and Rebecca are working to express. The opening track ‘Heavenly Voices’ blends string quartet (featuring The Kanimbla Quartet) with organ, piano and vocals. Other tracks, feature solo piano (Ghosts, Insanity, Angels), piano/violin duet (Elegy), piano with quartet pads (Lake of Contemplation), string quartet only (Interwoven Threads of Chance), string quartet featuring piano (Empty Moments) and other combinations uniquely fitted for the compositions they imbue.
