Ed Carlsen - The Journey Tapes| mr006

On his first record, Ed Carlsen crafts an original take on the modern classical genre that eloquently demonstrates his versatility as a composer, pianist and arranger. Oscillating between cinematic instrumentals and gripping electronics, The Journey Tapes’ large sound palette features Carlsen on the piano with a stellar cast of supporting musicians : Julie Krog (vocals), Mattia Melis (bass), Bryony James (cello) and Sophie Ryan (violin). Inspired by the landscapes of Ravnholm Skov in Denmark, the integral tracks were written in the summer of 2015 // recorded and mixed in London (UK) // mastered by Francesco Donadello at Calyx Studios Berlin.
