Steven Vrancken – Existence – Solo Piano (Spotify)

“Lonely solo piano in -Existence- reveals something airy and vulnerable. Lively, intimate and noble nature. Ambient tone and soundscape intoxicated by the beauty that barely touches the strings. Sense of silence and appeasement.”

“Одинокое соло пиано в -Existence- нечто воздушное и такое ранимое. Живое, интимное и благородное естество. Опьянённая своей красотой едва касается струн. Эмбиентные тона и звуковой ландшафт. Идиллия. Тишина. Умиротворение.”

Artist shared few words with us behind his inspiration:

"Yup, all the craziness out there did also affect me in several ways. That's why I was a bit out of the loop with my regular music releases. But hey, I'm back :-) Here's a slower, solo piano version with a subtle ambient touch, similar to my editorial 'The Snails Teachings II'. I love to experiment with various melody versions - exploring moods. Peaceful, uplifting nothingness are the words that pop up in my mind for this one." Steven Vrancken

Zachary Bruno – Emunah (Spotify)

“-Emunah- is pure neo-classical minimalism. With repeated and slightly varied patterns, developing an attitude that is perceived by the ear right away. -Emunah- is a way to express the author's personality and the freedom of being.”

“-Emunah- это чистый неоклассический минимализм, паттерны которой повторяются и незначительно варьируются, создавая нужный настрой и максимально легко воспринимаемой на слух. -Emunah- это способ выразить авторскую индивидуальность и свободу бытия.”

-Nagamag.com

In August 2013, Zachary released his debut album, Before the Rain, which reached #37 on the New Age charts. Kathy Parsons, of MainlyPiano.com called the collection of original solo piano pieces “amazing music and an extraordinary beginning to a very promising career in music.” After being introduced to piano lessons at age 6, music composition almost instantly caught Zachary’s interest. And it wasn’t long before he was attempting to scribble down melodies and riffs onto homemade staff-paper. While composition came naturally to Zach, it took the constant encouragement of family and friends to finally persuade him to record his first album of his original compositions. Finally, after over 4 years of practicing, composing, and putting the final touches on the pieces, Zachary released his debut album of 12 original piano solos out into the world. The album would be titled, Before the Rain (2013). It did not take long before he saw an interest for his music, and a year later, he released his second album, Dawn Light (2014), which was promptly nominated and awarded 2015 Album of the Year by Whisperings Solo Piano Radio (2016). Zachary is currently working on his third solo piano album scheduled for release in late fall of 2018.

Artist shared with us few words about this song"

"This track was created after a free form recording session with friend and cellist Raphael Weinroth-Browne. I recorded Raphael improvising for a couple hours in several different keys and styles and then compiled the recordings into a sample library. I then chopped and layered sections of the of the recordings to create a rich soundscape of strings and pads that float gently underneath bubbling arpeggios."

Jaap Mol – Here To Love (Spotify)

“Ambient and neoclassical; the perfect union of two elements. This is the love of two hearts, sunsets and sunrises. Also the whisper of the morning dawn and the singing of the cicadas during evenings. -Here To Love- gives an unforgettable feeling.”

“Эмбиент и неоклассика - это идеальный союз двух стихий. Это любовь двух сердец, закаты и рассветы, шепот утреннего прибоя и пение цикад прохладными вечерами. -Here To Love- дарит незабываемое ощущение. ”

-Nagamag.com

The fundament for this track was a rather hateful speech by one of our angry world leaders which I sampled an tried to turn into something beautiful. The result is this peaceful piano piece, which is essentially a loop, supplemented by drifitng synths, haunting cello’s and guitar. We can turn hate into beauty. Because we’re all together in this world and we’re here to love.
