Theodosius Bates ''Lost In Translation'' - murky and intense cinematic piano

This intricately dark neoclassical piano piece by Theodosius Bates is a yet another great example of innovation and originality in a genre that may at some times seem to have been used up of both.

Cinematic throughout it's almost two-minutes of duration, the composition is an embodiment of intensity and anticipation. While we can't be 100% sure, it would appear that the recording features not one, but two pianos, interacting with each other and continuously building on the dramatic core of this piano arrangement. My favorite part of this piece is the consistent walking bass line, as well as the fact that the music is written in a 5/4 time signature - one secure way to create momentum and keep it too.
