Performed entirely on electric harp and mellotron, Playgrounds Lost is a haunting exploration of the beauty, fragility and traumas of childhood. As it shifts between pastoral moments and dark, uncanny textures, the music progresses from folk-like melodies to noise, from ambient soundscapes to intricate, impressionistic compositions.
The unconventional sound design and cinematic atmospheres of Playgrounds Lost make for an immersive listening experience.
Written, arranged, produced and performed by Nerissa Schwarz (electric harp, mellotron)
