Beauty according to Michael Vincent Waller.
Tonal beauty and crackle-free sound tonality. The 29-year old New Yorker Michael Vincent Waller takes no notice of fashions. In his often beautiful compositions we hear modal harmonies, dreamy themes and seductive melodies. He is influenced by the minimalism of Terry Riley, but we can hear the impressionism of Ravel and Satie in his timeless music as well. In this Theme you will hear several of his chamber music compositions. In addition, we hear music by composers who have inspired Waller, including Terry Riley and Erik Satie.
