An Ancient Observer LP + MP3 Bundle
Availability: In stock
Price as configured: $0.00
Tigran Hamasyan's album An Ancient Observer includes ten new compositions, two of which are based on Armenian melodies. Some are through-composed and completely written out, while others are composed with ample space for Hamasyan to improvise. He cites a wide range of influences—from Baroque dance to hip-hop grooves adapted to piano—and the sounds of his native country of Armenia are present, as always. "These songs are musical observations about the world we live in now," he says, "and the weight of history we carry with us." Pre-orders include an instant download of the album tracks "Fides Tua" and "The Cave of Rebirth."
