matterlightblooming

Album, 2020 (Reveal Records)

Composer Richard J. Birkin presents matterlightblooming, a bold and epic orchestral work recorded with the London Contemporary Orchestra (Radiohead, Actress, Micachu, Steve Reich), one of the world's most sought-after orchestras. This is his first album since 2016’s critically-acclaimed Vigils (“A small miracle” - Drowned in Sound).

Reviews

"...beautifully realized and stunningly arranged, punctuated by moments of tender and wistful reflection, the music is epic in its sweep and unwavering in its optimism."

Stationary Travels

"The piece expands, becomes the moment inbetween some old way, some old world, some known and the growing exhilaration of transformation, before we can understand whether this step will lead us to something better or to the end."
