  • new album inspired by Philip K. Dick's seminal science fiction


    The Dowland Shores of Philip K. Dick's Universe is the freshly released electronic music album, wholly inspired by Dick's novels and stories. With space ambient tracks alternating with more dynamic pieces inspired by Dick's intricate works, it hopefully provides a sonic experience that lives up to the expectations of PKD fans

    Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was an American writer, whose works, exploring philosophical, political and theological themes, have moved from a rather unique corner of “science fiction” into mainstream (including cult film adaptations like Blade Runner and Minority Report) and into courses on literature.

    In Dick’s exquisitely complex, often disturbing (and disturbingly prophetic) universe there are numerous veiled or direct references to John Dowland, the English Renaissance composer.

    While navigating through Dick’s unique and turbulent world, these references for me were akin to encountering safe shores of humanity, of familiar and cosy reality, where one could stop for a moment among the many turbulent flows and currents.

    This album is about those shores - the human, sometimes background or secondary, stories and undercurrents in Dick’s ever-changing labyrinthine universe.

    Among the compositions, which were inspired by these, there are also a few tributes to John Dowland - hopefully adapted to fit into the Dick-inspired musical world as Dick’s references to the music of a distant past fit into his universe...

    It is released on
    Amazon CD, download and free full album streaming via Bandcamp, also on iTunes, Spotify, GooglePlay.
