“Twinklebox” (by Emphemetry)
It's a digital-only soundtrack single.
'Twinklebox' is an alternate version of the soundtrack to the animation of the same name by Aaron Bradbury.
'Old Dreams' is the first in a set of piano pieces (to be released later in 2012) inspired by the shadowless walled town in Haruki Murakami's novel 'Hard Boiled Wonderland & The End Of The World'.
"My studio, where my piano is kept, is situated in a very old mill at Darley Abbey in Derby.
There are crooked passages between the mill’s buildings, bits of machinery from dead industries, and strange empty structures with walls swelled by years. In the foggy none-days of mid-late winter this place has an uncanny resemblance to how I picture the shadowless walled town in the ‘end of the world’ scenario from Haruki Murakami’s novel Hard-boiled Wonderland & The End Of The World.
I started bringing the book with me to recording sessions, and taking it to the ghostly pub around the corner. With every chapter I could point to a place or think of a person in the world around me here that fit the words perfectly."
