Following the well received release, "Divina Commedia I: Nine Circles" by Jack Hertz and Scott Lawlor. Aural Films presents part two of the descent into Dante's Inferno titled, "Divina Commedia II: Seven Terraces." This release contrasts the darkness of "Nine Circles" with a lighter, more up-lifting album focused on purgatory and the Earthly paradise. Project composer, Scott Lawlor describes this release:
Upon the completion and release of Nine Circles in 2014, I sent Jack my organ drones to which I added some processed Gregorian chants from www.worldofdante.org/comedy/dante/music
as well as synth choirs for him to add elements to for the next release in the trilogy.
Whereas Nine Circles took a more direct approach to interpreting the music, though not necessarily a literal one, in this release, the goal is a more ethereal approach to the Seven Terraces, making the interpretation of the seven deadly sins from their opposite virtues the focal point of the album.
Jack has done remarkable work on this release, adding depth and beauty to my atmospheres and creating an audio experience that I hope you'll enjoy.
We have included a complete mix of the album as one long seamless segment in addition to the 10 original tracks on the album
Thank you for listening.
