Matthew Anderson: Schumann Grand Piano
John Daniel: Processing, evening walk
"It may have seemed like a sign of hope that the birds followed them out into the vastness of the open sea."
Electronic solo project of Cleveland Ohio’s John Daniel, this time with some grand piano help by Matthew Anderson. John’s material tends toward longform drones that accrue stardust as they stretch out to fill space. The sound is comparable to some French and German composers of the early 1970s, but his take is a bit different than anything that comes easily to mind. Good one.
