イギリスの作家Paul O'haraがSonorisより2002年に発表した唯一のアコースティックアンビエント作[Senseless Acts Of Beauty]。美しいピアノ & ギターの旋律を中心とした非常に暖かみのある内容で、日常にもスッと馴染む全く難しさのない一枚。
Minimal pastoralism influenced by the American and European Avant garde played on acoustic instruments with very sparse effects but plenty of beautiful accidents. First Sonoris C.D. release by English instrumentalist / composer takes it¹s title from the story of counterculture revolution since the 60's. A quiet revolution against attitude overload. (Paul O'Hara)
This record contains ten compositions mostly played on Wurlitzer piano. A very beautiful music (and I mean music) with cool bits of classic tonality, played like a cat lying in the sun, that might recall to the listener early 20th century french music (Satie, Debussy, ...), Brian Eno's Obscure collection and also some aspects of the post-rock scene. A perfect music to do nothing, just looking at the ceiling. Some may wonder why it's published on the label, some other won't. If you like Nick Drake or Mark Hollis, you may like this one too.
