Matthew Bourne lives in rural Yorkshire, and the tumbling hills and fields of those Northern lands seep into his music.
Afforded time and space to create music, the composer recently decided to swap 'moogmemory' for the piano on 'Isotach'.
Set to be released on August 18th via The Leaf Label, each piece on the album seems to pass by with real beauty and grace.
Clash is able to premiere a video for the title track, finding Matthew Bourne seated alone at the piano.
Each note is given added gravitas by the sheer sparsity of the performance, a wonderfully affecting piece.
Tune in now.
Catch Matthew Bourne at the following shows:
23 Aldeburgh Festival The Pumphouse
10 London Kings Place (with Keith Tippett)
