Ambient Piano from Southend-on-Sea

A heavily transmuted piece by Counter Silence (aka Colin Ventura)

“Dancing in the Rothko” so processes its evident piano source material, that it’s never quite clear we’re ever hearing the original audio, and yet we never get particularly far from that origin point. Notes are repeated by hand and by software, quick touches echoed until they resemble glass shards, chords leaving vapor trails into which repeated chords then merge. Standalone tones are left to linger like dust caught by a narrow ray of light. Absolutely stunning for four minutes that you wish would last an hour.

Track originally posted at soundcloud.com/countersilence. Counter Silence is Colin Ventura, based in Southend-on-Sea, Great Britain, more from whom at twitter.com/countersilence.
