The pandemic we experienced consuming 2020 effected us all in many ways. During this time, composer Arhynn Descy hatched a plan for an album project.
Postcards From A Pandemic
THE CONCEPT: It’s the year 2050. You discover a bunch of old postcards, mailed back in 2020… ’that year’ – the year when the world went still. Each postcard is a poem, is a piece of music recorded during lockdown.
