Hannah Peel: Journey To Cassiopeia

Commissioned by:

Root Music

Inspired by a brand new brass band score of Mike Oldfield’s multi-million selling classic ‘Tubular Bell’s’, Tubular Brass were keen to commission a further new piece combining 70’s analogue synths and brass. Drawing from her influences of electronic pioneers Daphne Oram and Delia Derbyshire, electronic artist, composer and arranger, Hannah Peel tells the story of Mary Casio.  Through an intergalactic journey from Earth to the star constellation of Cassiopeia, Peel explores one person’s journey through space, time and mortality by telling the story of 86 year old Mary Casio and her lifelong stargazing dream to leave her South Yorkshire home in the mining town of Barnsley and see Cassiopeia for herself.eia!
