Richard LaBrooy is an Australian composer/pianist who has come to our attention with a composition that is as crisp, as it is soaked in the beauty of sadness.
Taking off on a piano melody written around a solid classical core, the composer enriches the experience with distant but vital ambient backing drones. Like a tale, the piano continues to weep it's loving melody when suddenly, the soundscape is rearranged with drones and strings being placed upfront, contrasting the until-now melancholic mood with eagerness and some form of madness. Before too long though, the piece returns into its contemplative, gracefully sad domain, leaving the short-lived madness tamed and behind.
