La Suite des Morts

L’Abbaye des Morts. The Orchestral Suite (2010)

The idea came from a trip to Castell’Arquato (North of Italy), where I found an ancient chapell (from 758 A.C.) and that visit made me think of L’abbaye des Morts OST, but played with a pipe organ. Then I thought on composing an entire orchestral suite based on monophonic chiptune music from ‘L’Abbaye…’, and this is the result.
