about

The music on this CD is inspired by the novel Cloud Atlas from the English writer David Mitchell. With compositions by Christian Blaha, Dies le Duc, Jorrit Tamminga, Wiek Hijmans, Daan Manneke & Douwe Eisenga. The liner notes in the booklet are written by David Mitchell. It is also interesting to mention that on the first and the last track of the album David Mitchell himself recites fragments of his book.

David Mitchell on the CD:

“When I learned that six eminent Dutch composers were working on an interpretation of my novel ‘Cloud Atlas’, I was honoured, but itching with curiosity. What on Earth would – and could- they do with it? The answer is the music on this disc. As a glance at the track listing shows, the composers en bloc retained the novel’s ‘Russian doll’ structure, whereby the six narratives are interrupted in turn until a ‘central’ story: then the narratives are resumed, in reverse order, at the point of interruption. The listener will also hear, however, how all the composers have hoed their own rows by creating six compositions with as much variance in style and colour as the six novellas of the novel.”
