Glamdring is an instrumental record derived from the soundtrack of the 1977 cartoon, The Hobbit (Rankin-Bass). The songs are a hybrid collection of live and electronic instruments composed over a bed of samples from the film. The record moves cinematically from mood to mood, abstract to melodic, all in narrative-fashion. Relic themes are modernized and pressed into something wholly new, yet wholly nostalgic. Glamdring makes for a listening experience that’s entirely unique. Listen here on SoundCloud.
