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.
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.
Steve Wheeler has poured endless passion, time & skill into this music. The detail & the overall rush the album gives you is breathtaking. A timeless collection & clearly the work of a creative at the top of his game.
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.
The EP slowly but surely washes over you in a manner that – if you let it – completely soothes the soul. It paints over your worries & guides you through limitless space; filled with ideas & possibilities.
Trouble in London is something of a creative audio masterpiece. Precisely the kind of composition that pushes the limits in a pure & naturally emotive way.
You can hear the passion and soul of the moment, the instance of individuality that created this performance and composition. You can appreciate the artistry of it at the same time as being grateful for the strength and escapism it offers.
I Found Autumn is an instrumental, neo-classical collection that moves delicately between that which is calming & that which is utterly breath-taking. An absolute must for music lovers across genres.
The concept & the leading voice remain prominent, calm but steady & always familiar; the essential threads that make this what it is. Elsewhere though, the music builds & builds, moving from mild to immense & dramatic in a few short minutes.
Alexandre Perotto has heart & soul when it comes to music – to be able to showcase this by means of a two minute, solo instrumental performance, is incredible. Eternitarian is stunning. The connection is profound & beautiful.
Ignatov underlines a varied, perhaps limitless & creative side to his work more & more so as this album progresses. He keeps his audience on their toes throughout. The ultimate, musically immaculate offering of escapism.
