|Towards The Blue Peninsula
This is a previously unreleased and new work from Keith Berry. Partially inspired by Koda's "Movements" full-length recording from almost 10 years ago, Berry has moved away from the computer-based compositions of 'The Ear That was sold...' utilizing Akira Rabelais's Argeiphöntes Lyre software to something a bit more windswept perhaps or at times aquatic and organic sounding. Not that prior endeavors were ever easily categorized as computer-based, or sterile environments - quite the opposite. What makes Berry's recordings so engaging, is that one is never quite sure what the source of sound is. It doesn't matter - each piece in their own right is magnificent from the debut 'The Golden Boat' to the twin masterpieces, "The Ear That Was Sold to a Fish" and "A Strange Feather" to "The Cartesian Plane" LP and now "Towards the Blue Peninsula". Berry's recordings are the result of letting ideas take their course, revising, re-visiting and letting the works breathe.
