MARANASATI 19111 is the debut album from Nina Keith, a composer and multi-instrumentalist from Philadelphia. The album features textured piano arrangements laced with vocals, flute, electronics and found sounds. While rooted in contemporary classical music, the record ebbs and flows with a unique human quality, informed by its compelling narrative.
Set in the woods, hospitals, and churches of Northeast Philadelphia, MARANASATI 19111 delves deeply into the memory networks of childhood. Inspired by her experience in EMDR therapy, Nina Keith explores a personal history marked by community tragedy and a paranormal incidents, and seeks to create a more reverent relationship with death and groundlessness.
