Of Narratives & Nocturnes. Featuring eight original through-composed works written programmatically to elements of mythology, religion, and visual art and accompanied with original poetic prose and illustrations by Vancouver-based designer Studio CĂ©leste, Of Narratives & Nocturnes is a holistic storytelling experience that transcends genre norms and immerses listeners in the worlds Davis creates.The title is indicative of both the album's concept and compositional vision. Of Narratives & Nocturnes is at it's core an anthology: a series of tales either following a linear plot or evoking deep emotion. In other words, the album itself is a collection of narratives and nocturnes, brought to life by Davis's band, the Simeon Davis Group. Compositionally, each of the eight pieces draws on sources outside music as the creative impetus. By mapping emotions, locations and characters onto specific themes and timbres, Davis wordlessly paints the experiences of his characters as they engage, ensnare, and overcome one another.
