LOL – Keys for Thought

2015
Cover:LOL – Keys for Thought

This first mix is a small collection of piano and key based tracks, mainly contemporary, that all explore the space between the noise. Conceived as a backing track to thinking; hence ‘Keys for Thought’. With many people now working with background music it’s a contemplative background for when the work is more creation than grind. Spanning from ‘contemporary classic’ to straight up modern, there’s a wide range of approaches and artists but they all have the same appreciation of the space between the notes often particular to piano. Traveling from staid to melancholic to tush shaker it’s hopefully a productive journey.
