This is a series of melancholic piano solo pieces written by the composer in response to a request he put out to his friends asking them to define the word ‘melancholy’. I could fairly easily define it this morning whilst sat in a cold empty house staring out the window at the drain dribbling down. These solo pieces are perfect if you want to get in that mood.
Opener ‘Somehow Familiar’ is somehow familiar, whether it be something Max Richter has concocted or Dustin O ‘Halloran, I feel that I’ve heard the piece before. That doesn’t stop it being remarkably beautiful. ‘Midsummer Tiny Song’ despite the title reminds me of watching christmas lights sway in the wind and rain. A glistening piece of lonely instrumental music designed to sooth you through the miserable hours. Its all recorded beautifully, not too slick, almost like its been recorded onto some old tape and left to weather a bit. ‘My Piano, The Clouds’ is again rather familiar, not unlike the ‘American Beauty’ soundtrack or the sweetest bits of Rachels.
These pieces have been played more than 300,000 time on t’internet so have obviously found a deserved audience. The physical release is well worth picking up if you want to feel sad. I don’t. I really don’t but its a lovely record anyway.,
