Propellers. I don't know why, but it's all I can think about with this piece. Like an old biplane - or even a world war II fighter, like a spitfire or a hurricane.
This track could have been written two hundred years ago and yet - it sounds wonderfully modern and unique.
It's the tone of the piano that grabs me here - big and dark and and faintly foreboding - kinda like the steel tube you're sitting in.
I love this - it feels like the start of a new day - full of hope - full of build - full of light and love and support and just - damn - it's everything you want in a beautifully uplifting piece of music.
Yann Tiersen is one of my favorite pianist / composers - what he did with the score of Amelie was amazing - one instrument - a myriad of emotions - sheer genius.
As an artist you never know what tracks are going to resonate with the public - of sure, you can be part of a Nashville songwriting team and construct a track for an audience but even, you've no real idea whether it'll "fly" or not.
So you want a cascading piano to paint every bit of sadness in your soul? Yet you also want it to have an element of hope?
I love it when you think you know a track only to have your expectations exceeded as the composer take you in a completely unexpected direction.
A collaboration between two people, two pianists which produces an effortlessly light, floaty, safe space.
