This is the music that accompanies audiences through Living Structures’ Cart Macabre the extraordinary show in which the audience travels inside wooden carriages.

Verity Standen caries Kruses’ haunting lyrics to terrifying height. In her compositions she worked closely with the provocative and ephemeral environment and themes of Cart Macabre. Snatches of sea shanties, distant sirens beckoning and the folk influenced harmonies add an eerie comfort to the audiences’ heightened senses, each song offering a narrative or a question as they are moved around the space.

Please contact Verity if you have any questions in regards to the music in the show or would like some more information: verity@livingstructures.co.uk

“VERITY STANDEN’S LUSCIOUSLY ARRANGED A CAPELLA MUSIC IS ONE OF THE WONDERS OF A TRIP WHICH MAKES YOU LISTEN WITH YOUR EYES, SEE WITH YOUR EARS AND QUESTION WHAT ON EARTH IT IS THAT WE’RE IN SUCH A RUSH TO GET TO.”
