Scenes From a Vampire Movie, by Lona Kozik
Scenes From a Vampire Movie is a set of five atmospheric pieces by composer/improviser Lona Kozik. These pieces explore the idea of vampire movies without resorting to the horror cliches so typical of the genre and (often) of its music. The first piece, for example (The Vampire Awakes), is soaked in a sense of foreboding and mystery over a drone which opens out into melodic twists and turns that resolve into a slow, melancholic tune with bags of atmosphere. The pieces are ostensibly simple but all with some technical demands such as passing a melody from hand to hand, a need for very even finger technique, and mastering the art of atmospheric playing.
