Film composer Cyril Morin (Samsara, Borgia, The Syrian Bride) and pianist William Lecomte (Jean Luc Ponty, Nigel Kennedy) meet once again for their latest album after collaborating on the jazz-fusion album “New Daw” (2017).
Both musicians draw their talents from distinguished backgrounds:
Cyril Morin is a multi-awarded composer, Academy member, with several nominations from the World Soundtrack, Jerry Goldsmith Awards and European Film Awards.
William Lecomte won First Prize for Composer and Best Band in La Défense Jazz Festival 1988 in Paris and the French «Django d’or» album award as Arranger and Pianist as well as a nomination at the French « Victoires de la Musique ».
Their music displays an eclectic range of influences, employing many different elements from Morin’s recent soundtracks (Frontiers, The Last Film Show) and solo albums (New Dawn, Ayurveda). The style ranges from minimalism to a complex mix of layered piano tracks that display the virtuosity of two musicians at their creative peak.
More than just a duet, the album was performed live then played and mixed in a virtual environment, using a combination of rooms and distances. The result is an ear-opening musical voyage in which sounds come and go in unexplored directions, forming an intriguing sonic tapestry for the listener.
