“This music came to me in a kind of lucid dream, in a kind of vision, a very special kind of trance so to speak. Maybe this music came to me from another world, who knows?”
Phillip Carrington gets freely creative on this EP Alpha. There’s no single instrument that is the heart of this project, just a thoroughly artistic connection to music itself.
The unpredictability starts to line up with your own emotional reactions to it. Rather than just listening, you’re involved – your emotions tumble down the very same rabbit hole as the music.
A stunning album, a pleasure to have play for you and a refreshing take on Christmas music that embraces the listener in a subtle but magnificent manner. Absolutely worth downloading either for yourself or a loved one this Christmas.
Always one to throw in more than a few subtle curve balls, Forest Robots proves there is no limit to his creative reach – no hill too high to climb, no sound too unusual to approach & master with professionalism & care.
Not until you’ve let the music rain down on you in full – which it does, the sound of rain is consistent – not until then does it really release you from the fast pace of modern life and let you realise the stillness of being.
One by one I found traditional songs that I thought worked well with my solo piano arrangements. Those are the ten songs that ended up on Toyland.
I cannot encourage you enough to experience Alexandre Perotto’s music at the earliest convenience. It’s a blessing to have such an artist among us, and this collection in full is consistently outstanding.
It feels, to me, like the long walk through the Las Vegas casino or hotel – mellow at first, slowly getting stranger & more colourful, eventually veering off down some chaotic hallway where all sorts of impossible wonders are in action.
Rather than seeking out track after track or relying upon playlists that randomly mix, Bongo Boy Records make discovering new music easy with their new take on music television.
The rise & fall of the progression, the movement through the notes, both string & wind, gives off a sense of waves lapping at the shore, or perhaps of a tired chest breathing slowly & deeply.
A fine short collection – unique in its creative freedom yet rhythmically soothing enough to simply let play; evidently on repeat. There are certain traits within each piece that offer a clear level of individuality.
