THE MOST FLEETING — a new, solo piano track is out now on volume four of 1631 Recordings’ Piano Cloud Series. This piece was inspired by an interview with Ryuichi Sakamoto, in which he extols the importance of artists spending time unoccupied in the natural world. The song was recorded and mixed at Church House Studios in Austin, Texas by David Boyle on his 1913 Steinway. Audio mastering by Taylor Deupree. We are elated to contribute to this release alongside such artists as Akira Kosemura, Eluvium, The Album Leaf and many others. Stream and download via your favorite platform. Thank you for for listening.
