In his attempt to compose a soundtrack to a novel — Lair Hunt's The Impossibly — Roger Green, with the help of Mark Harris on saxophone and bass clarinet, Janet Feder on prepared acoustic guitar and James Han on piano, delivers an emotionally complex, sonically inverted collection of instrumentals. By way of painfully slow, stretched-out compositions, much of the music achieves the disorienting anxiety of a well-plotted story, leaving listeners unsure if they want to know what's around the corner. Reminiscent of tense film scores like those of Jon Hassell for Million Dollar Hotel and György Ligeti for Eyes Wide Shut, the score for The Impossibly reveals Green's incredible patience and vision. It'll leave you clothed in goosebumps and awash in unsettling memories
