Thresholds’ is the 6th studio album from acclaimed artists Saso and marks a change in direction with purely instrumental compositions using orchestration, piano and electronics in collaboration with pianist Kevin Corcoran.
The inspiration for ‘Thresholds’ comes from recent life events involving loss and change. Saso went about creating music compositions that would reflect the cycle of life and the journey to death. They invited musician and arranger Kevin Corcoran to collaborate and help with string and piano arrangements. Kevin had previously worked on their last album ‘Mysterium’ and for this record, they created a sonic landscape for Kevin to explore and interpret the arrangements where the music evolved into a joint venture of reflection and expression.
The result is a contemplative and meditative work, which is reflective in nature. The aim is to draw the listener in, to immerse in a sonic experience and to give thoughts and emotions the space to appear and release.
In Nov 2019, Thresholds was performed live in the Smock Alley Theatre featuring Kevin Corcoran and the Glasshouse Ensemble.
