Léo Hoffsaes - J’ai pour eux cet amour qui ne passe jamais, qui ne faiblit pas

$6.75

:: verdigris shadows etching, brilliant absentia; liminal paths ::

Paris (FR)-based composer Léo Hoffsaes deftly nestles neo-classical chamber pieces into wide-open spaces on his debut solo album "J’ai pour eux cet amour..." While the strong compositions alert listeners to his education and background, Hoffsaes eschews any particular theoretical or stylistic mode. Smoothly modulating chords are blended with expansive field recordings, creating hazy, gauzey, breathing "sound moments" for the listener to rebuild their own worlds. With an intentionally open concept and sound, "J’ai pour eux cet amour..." is stellar modern environmental music.
