<< -- 3 -- Robert Hugill MELODIC TALENT
The final track, The Fallen, opens with long held chords superimposed over a running figuration in the piano. This essential structure is repeated, sometimes adding more layers, sometimes less; a commonality to all the variations is the essential harmonic structure and the piece gradually registers as a form of chaconne
[listen -- track 10, 0:57-1:53],
Davis's imaginative way of constructing a large scale structure using relatively short-breathed material.
This album will not appeal to everyone; Davis's style of music is hardly new-age or minimal. He has an appealing melodic talent and his use of sampling means that he can use a wide palette of colours, even if we miss out on the interaction between live instrumentalists.
