This is a nice, blended album that Mr. Reedy sent to me a week or so ago. It blends sparse, introspective piano with minimal electronic backing & a lot of sentiment contained within the compositions – please have a listen!
The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively.
Inspired by the format of NIN’s “Ghosts I-IV“, the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer & samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic – rather, an eclectic blend of the three.
Released February 17, 2017
