The soundtrack to a Poe-inspired art show§§§"Edgar Allan Poe: A Life Of Hope & Despair" was conceived in October 2014 as the soundtrack to a Poe-inspired art show and is 1476's first foray into the realm of soundtrack creation. In contrast to the pulse-raising feel of Poe's literary works, the sound of "A Life Of Hope & Despair" aims to explore the melancholic and quaint life, love, and death of the author. The mood and ambience that lives on the periphery of 1476's music takes center stage on this release. Each song draws upon both Neoclassical and experimental influences, weaving piano and string sections together with analogue synthesizers, samples, glitch, and drone to create an atmospheric, engaging experience akin to Chopin making music with Ulver and Current 93. All hail the "Tomahawk Man"!
