The results are simply beautiful. There's a classical heritage on show, but alongside this Michael Price has a gift for simple melodies which pierce through the veneer of the everyday- 'Clash'
London, UK (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
Recorded in Phoenix Studios at Pinewood, London – a location chosen by Michael Price as 'a haven for me in a noisy world' – December 18th marks his debut release in the form of 'A Stillness' on Erased Tapes Records; a four-track limited edition vinyl including printed music sheets and high quality downloads as announced by Clash.
Renowned for his work as film composer on the BBC hit series Sherlock, producer and award-winning music editor on films such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Children of Men and James Bond: Quantum of Solace, this small collection of songs shows a more personal side of Price- a chance for him to create music without any scripts and guidelines.
You can listen/share 'A Bridge' in full from the forthcoming EP exclusively here and watch/share 'A Tenderness' as a first excerpt from the string recording session at Pinewood, from Vimeo here or YouTube here.
"I'm trying to create a small Stillness in a noisy, hyper-connected world. I wanted to make something personal, and real, with musicians that I've known for a long time. Usually we've all got headphones on, chasing click tracks and fitting our performances to picture. It was time to get the headphones off stop all the clocks and ticking, really connect musically and try to capture a moment. To be able make something intimate and authentic in an often noisy world is a real pleasure.
When I heard what we had, there was only one collection of musicians and artists that felt a natural fit, and that was Erased Tapes. I'd always admired Robert's artistic vision, and the way that he created a nurturing, collaborative environment around the artists he worked with. It's a privilege to be even a small part of that." – Michael Price
