Arlet’s music is located somewhere between the folk club and the chamber music hall. Their sound brings together the primary colours of the orchestra – strings, woodwind and brass – and adds an indefinable irridescent shimmer.
The joyful melodicism and rhythmic intensity of British folk is a shared inspiration. Arlet are exploring the possibilities of arranging folk melody in a way which draws on the post-1960s serialist and minimalist composers (Reich, Glass, et al.) while achieving a musical vision closer in joyous and exuberant spirit to the music of Terry Riley.
