I’m clearly in a defined space at the moment when it comes to the music I want to work to or write to - not that I can describe it terribly well but it’s certainly not the classical solo acoustic instrument stuff (although Vin Downes’ acoustic Streets of Sunday did sneak in a few weeks back.)
There’s definitely a video game vibe going on - with this track the bell tones and simple melodies evoke an almost whimsical feel- I can see a groovy little pixelated character exploring a vast wilderness and not necessarily fighting dragons.
I suspect it’s the movement these pieces have that are grabbing my attention - simple beat tracks deliver energy but little distraction while understated melodies create space to look around and take everything in.
Take it out for a spin…

About the Curator: Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician. Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works. It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music and began to develop music2work2.
