Francis Theberge - The Burial Of William B.

The Burial Of William B. by Francis Theberge

Thick with murk and menace, a claustrophobic atmosphere blankets a burial

Windy reverberations howl through the thirty five minutes of William B.'s passing as devoted pallbearers wrestle with nature high on an exposed hillside. Brought to vivid portrayal by field recordings, speed effects, sound errors, and textures, it's as sombre and funereal as you might expect, but the haunting message is universal: all things must pass.
