about

Sentimental Parlour Music is the debut album of composer/sound artist Desmond Knight. The opening track "Pool" is an underwater nocturne that fuses Knight’s recording of pool tubes humming in the night with a duet for soprano and soprano saxophone by composer Noah Kaplan. Knight’s singular catalogue of captured and found ephemeral sound is cut up and reassembled to form the broad worlds of "Bridge" and "July 4th Fragment."

Track Name: Pool
Down the corridor
of numbered doors
the unremarkable hidden chamber
with folios of spider scrawl
postcards from Elsinore
the crumbled Crystal Palace
everlasting on the wall
overlook the edge of indifference
in the unsound
draws the curtain
time, flattened, passes by
the precious metals left behind
stellify across the sky
