“Badlands” is the second full length album by composer Jeremiah Cymerman’s apocalyptic chamber ensemble, Pale Horse. Recorded in February 2015, “Badlands”, picks up where their self-titled 2014 debut left off, with emphasis on dark ambient soundscapes built by the acoustic trio of clarinet, cello and drums. Over the course of two long form compositions, the trio move meticulously through a series of barren lands, populated by lone drifters with nothing to lose and howling winds and far away cries. Inspired equally by the work of composers Scelsi & Ligeti, the novels of Cormac McCarthy, the films of Wim Wenders and the hypnotic brutality of Swans, “Badlands” presents a dark vision of the west, a sound world that is the perfect accompaniment to hopeless nights and anxiety dreams.
