Sailing Ships & Tarot Cards

Christopher de Groot

An acid-soaked moonlit cruise through a landscape of 60s exotica, Delia Derbyshire inspired sci-fi soundscapes, classic Bernard Herrmann, a pinch of John Zorn, and a twist of David Lynch. Welcome to the idiosyncratic aural tapestries of Christopher de Groot!

Incorporating mysterious sound bites and location sounds, Sailing Ships & Tarot Cards is an auditory journey that deftly blends mid-century exotica with flavours from the Australian bush and the noir-tinged landscapes of John Zorn and David Lynch. It’s an engaging musical road-trip that takes the listener through a series of colourful, hghly textured landscapes of changing moods, a tropical moonlit fever-dream that leaves you breathless and eager to hear it again.
