O’s Notes: This is a beautifully packaged set of two discs composed and performed by Alexander Berne and the Abandoned Orchestra. The first is titled Flickers of Mime. It traces the path of a rising star through eleven segments. Disc 2, Death of Memes focuses on the second half of the arc with nine more tracks. The dynamics are great pulling you into the mood as life begins and develops. At times it feels abstract and then invigorating. It would be great to see this music accompanied on stage, with video or live scenes.
