In this final installment, David Alfred Reilly, the multi-instrumentalist working under the pseudonym of Effa Lente has released the last of three teasers on the lead up to the album’s reveal next week on 14th August 2015.
A one track album, The Effa Lente Configuration: Parts 1-4, clocks in at just under 45 minutes and these teasers offer only a brief glance at one of the many soundscapes contained.

Inspired by a Quentin Tarantino movie, Reilly thought to write a piece of music where, much like a movie, the resolution of various parts wouldn’t necessarily happen immediately. He explains, “They could happen somewhere later in the piece. And also, not everything in the music would be about ‘the plot’, it would go off at various tangents in between the main events. Again, just like the movie.”
What started as an idea turned into a 15 minute piece and quickly expanded into something much bigger. “Eventually there were 4 distinct parts spread out over 45 minutes, with each part containing its own parts within, but the plan was to keep them all together as one continuous piece, rather than present them separately. This would not only be a challenge for the writer/performer, but also for the listener.”
“The end result is a 44.5 minute piece, sounding like a cross between a prog band and a film score. A unique musical experience.”
Artwork (as seen above) was done by Ewa Miszczak at Emoi Art. The album was composed, performed, produced and mixed entirely by David Alfred Reilly in his own studio in Dublin before Richard Dowling (Anathema, Brian Eno, Carcass) took over for mastering detail.
The Effa Lente Configuration: Parts 1-4 is due for release on CD 14th August 2015.
