about

'Soliloquy' is an album of eleven individual voices speaking about life, set to the beautiful and perceptive orchestrations of alan neilson. The stories of the speakers resonate with honesty, dignity, integrity and sincerity.

Influenced by the work of Gavin Bryars, David Byrne and Brian Eno, and a follow up to neilson's earlier album "The Life & Times of C A Allen", 'Soliloquy' is engaging and thought-provoking. It is an emotional ride, full of love, anger, jealousy and joy in equal amounts. The music and words combine to produce an uplifting and life-affirming experience.

This edition is the 25 track album featuring instrumental versions of the tracks and additional previously unreleased songs. It also contains a 22 page PDF booklet with images and lyrics, and a history of the project by the composer.
