Gian Slater and Silo String Quartet ‘Creatures at the Crossroads’

Gian formed her collaboration with the renowned Silo String Quartet to present songs from her 2007 release ‘Creatures at the Crossroads’.  Gian recorded the album with the remarkable pianist Will Poskitt, who tragically passed away shortly after the recording. The album was inspired by the artsong tradition and explores ideas of freedom and limitation, reflecting upon the struggle to find a balance between the necessities, responsibilities and passions in our lives.

Gian’s re-arrangements for the sublime silo string quartet  give this material a new life, while still retaining the integrity and minimalism of the album’s original sound.
