Derek Hunter Wilson - Travelogue - LP
Regular price $ 14.99
Travelogue is the first album by 27-year-old Portland composer Derek Hunter Wilson. By turns harrowing, poignant, and restrained, it is remarkably accomplished for a debut. Centered around Derek's masterful piano playing, Travelogue also features accompaniment on violin by resident Beacon Sounder Peter Broderick as well as field recordings, cello, harp, and synthesizers. This collection of songs sits comfortably alongside recent work by Julia Kent, Max Richter, and Jóhann Jóhannsson while retaining its own sense of style and place. Embedded in the rainy ethos of contemporary Cascadia, listening to Travelogue brings to mind watching the cranes work through a water streaked window.
