Fresh Handmade Sound: Synaesthesia
CD
Lush Spa Music

Synaesthesia is an orchestral masterpiece of Englishness. Simon Emmerson combines rousing melodies with an inventive folk spin on a classic song from the 60s. Synaesthesia is an album you have to experience. It takes you on a journey through breaking dawn and into a fantastical twilight of natural, majestic soundscapes of bird chorus and the depths of a dark forest with each crescendo. The first soft rain brings in a glorious chorus of rooks and jackdaws stirring all around you before the music sweeps you off again to the calm of the Scarborough Fair, sung with the soft vocals of The Imagined Village. Synaesthesia was our first album of spa music and it’s one of Simon’s greatest achievements.

“These are natural soundscapes. The first one took two weeks at Corfe Castle just getting the song thrush and church bells right; I even had a very cold night in Finland at -17 to record hawk owls calling across frozen fields.” – Mark Constantine

“Collaborating with inspiring musicians from The Imagined Village, The Nightjar Orchestra and the superb masseurs allowed us to produce a score that was fully choreographed to the treatment.” – Simon Emmerson

"The result was an innovative project, put together partly to act as a sound accompaniment to Lush’s various spa treatments and massages yet also a stand-alone musical pleasure."
