Arbatskaya string duet reimagined by Rob Knight.

"The word "Saints" inspired me for the name of the piece - Hilde, after Saint Hildegard of Bingen born in 1098, she was a German Benedictine abbess, writer, polymath, philosopher and also a composer. As the original piece was recorded at the entrance of a Moscow Metro station it made me think of trains and I wanted the piece to feel hypnotic at times, like an underground train. Which leads me onto the other word "Rattled". Again referring back to the original recording the word "Rattled" made me think of the sound of a tube train as it rattles and clatters over the tracks. I used a processed field recording of a tube train later in the piece which l felt tied it all together."
