Stranger Than Life

Quirky, slightly discordant orchestral instruments lead us through this unusual and offbeat album. With detuned mallets, strings, glockenspiels and echoey percussion, it's eerie and sometimes spooky but extremely compelling at the same time. This album is very versatile and will suit a wide range of scenes within the world of documentary, factual programming and beyond
