Joseph Shabason Remixes “La Vagabonde”


A new air swirls with minimal effort as the Toronto-based avant-garde instrumentalist weaves soft woodwind layers which hover over the watery warble of the piano. Shabason invokes a hazy, early summer light glancing through the hushed sounds of children playing in the distance.

Time In The Hand


We are thrilled to share Time In The Hand with you — a recomposition of Beethoven’s timeless 'Adagio Cantabile' from the Sonata Pathétique No. 8, Op. 13.  Just in time to celebrate the grand composer's 250th birthday.

︎︎︎ Streaming now on all platforms.

Growing up as a child Beethoven was the first image of a true musician. The unruly hair, the fits of temper, the passion, mania and loss of hearing. But mostly it’s his music. Devastating and delicate, encompassing the entire human experience. Taking his music into my hands was something I hesitated to attempt and ultimately what I wanted to do was to try and change as few notes as possible. I have been inspired anew by Beethoven’s music and am honored to share this version with you.
— Rob, Balmorhea
