“The Days Go By” – Nanaki

Nanaki’s work “The Days Go By” is an atmospheric, crystallized mobile hanging in the sky; heavy and light, dark and shining, motionless and blurringly fast.  The work begins with a nearly-still texture, making its way into a flurry of action that still maintains the sapphire-like placement of each element in the mix.  In the song’s undulations between crystalline and cloudy, the tension builds and the texture thickens, giving the listener a sense of catharsis once the last wave of the blizzard finishes.  Leaving us with shards of glass surrounding us, the glockenspiel and guitar quietly plays us offstage.  What a mesmerizing and novel use of a Springsteen-like orchestration with the grit of grunge.  Check it out!
