Over the course of his long career, composer Kevin Keller has been known to switch things up from album to album, but this year he took things a step further. Breaking the patterns of his previous twelve albums, he asked his fans for directions and ideas – and then designed new sounds to guide his studio improvisations.
The result of this experiment is Shimmer, his first album to be released on both CD and VINYL. Using mostly piano and vintage analog gear, Keller created “the sound of dreams and memories… music about the search for companionship, and the illusion of loneliness.”
Shimmer may be the most seamless mix of Keller’s classical, atmospheric, and Berlin School electronic stylings yet.
