Lotuspike / Brain Laughter
With a title referring to the fascinating phenomenon of rain evaporating before it reaches the ground, the new work by veteran composer Jeff Greinke gathers acoustic and electronic sonorities in a collection of twelve beautiful themes. The acoustic instruments are the piano, the violoncello and the trumpet.
The music is slow and relaxing, rich in ethereal atmospheres and melodies. These flow among a romanticism of a melancholy air, the cosmic and the mysterious.
With regards to their structure, the themes have traits typical of Ambient and also of Chamber Music.
Greinke has a special talent to evoke in the listener ambiences of sound without the easy option of introducing recognizable ambient sounds. Making exclusive use of instrumental sounds, he places us in the midst of the immensity of his music.
