Improvisational pianist Tom Rogerson linked up with legendary ambient artist and producer Brian Eno – the result is positively gorgeous. Previewing their upcoming collaborative album Finding Shore through Dead Oceans, this is a lovely study-in-peace, introspective, and less-is-more kind of track.
Opening in archetypal Eno fashion as a gentle glockenspiel effect calmly expands a simple motif before seamlessly transitioning into a classical Rogerson sonata that steadily increases in intensity and complexity. The ambient elements and piano complement each other perfectly, creating a beautifully evocative piece of work.
As has typified Eno's work throughout his career, this song tenderly inhabits the space between ambient noise and the assertive nature of traditional music. Slowly immersing you in what feels like gentle rain, begging you to be still and to lose yourself in its depths as it evokes the calm and solitude of lost memories.
