Leon den Engelsen is a Swedish pianist/composer who's wonderfully soothing, meditative piece entitled "Awakening" we are delighted to present to you today.
Immersive from the get go, the piano captivates the listener with its sporadic, well-placed notes, all the while a phasing distant drone is providing for a soft carpet for the delicate notes to fall onto. Recorded with close-mics the listener gets to witness both the instrument and the pianist moving by hearing an occasional creak of wood, making the entirety of the experience ever so intimate. Liberating in both arrangement and delivery, the piece is not only a valuable neoclassical gem, but carries within itself meditative potential as well.
Pure improvised delight, here's "Awakening":
