about

Composed as the instrumental soundtrack to a modern dance piece choreographed by Becky Radway, "Crooked House" examines the relationships between 4 individuals who share a residence in a dark, twisted corner of the world. Alternating between minimalist compositional techniques, somber jazz and explosive post-rock, the structures dictate the fragile state of mind each character is burdened by, as displayed in their solo sections, as well as the back-and-forth struggles in the group movements. As their realizations, denials, accusations, and acceptances come to light, they are whipped into a frenzied finale that culminates in a shattering of their former lives. But is there hope for both individual and collective redemption?
