Kenneth James Gibson – Far From Home (Brian McBride’s Diminished Stories Mix) – Meadows Heavy Recorders

Sometimes absence isn’t the chosen path but Brian McBride’s Diminished Stories Mix of Far From Home pulls upon heartstrings like there is no tomorrow to speak of. It feels orchestral in that deep, resounding way as strings plunge into unknown depths, bass notes then scatter your attention further afield while pianos only seek to highlight and compound the experience, eventually trailing off into the ether. In a word, beautiful.
