Prepare to embark on an ethereal and dramatic journey through the cosmos with David Baron’s EP, “The Velvet Inks Of Space.”
The EP begins with “Entanglement,” a mesmerizing composition that beautifully blends the resonant tones of a Steinway D Concert Grand with the delicate strings of a small ensemble. As the instruments intertwine and interact, the concept of entanglement from quantum physics comes to life, reminding us of the relativity of all things.
Moving further into the cosmic soundscape, we encounter the “Jinhi Point to the Moon,” which combines the celesta, piano, and Hammond organ for an immersive and playful dance of music.
Continuing the celestial voyage, “Trees of Ice” transports us to a magical landscape shaped by nature’s icy touch, demonstrated with serene piano. The sound has been engineered by the Loupé looping pedal adjoining two pianos, thus creating a mesmerizing interplay of melodies.
Concluding the EP is the title track, “Velvet Inks of Space.” Here, the haunting melodies of the Steinway D from 1954 take center stage, with classic and evocative notes nuanced to envelop listeners in a world of introspection and contemplation.
“The Velvet Inks Of Space” was made for stargazers, drawing inspiration from film scores and memory pieces. The album cinematizes the gazers’ galactic sessions and enhances their level of immersion by connecting their universal thoughts with nature beyond the confines of gravity. “The Velvet Inks Of Space” by David Baron invites listeners to embark on a cosmic journey where the boundaries between sound and silence, memory and imagination, become beautifully blurred.
