While listening to the music on his new album, VISIONS, instrumentalist Uwe Gronau suggests you imagine a summertime late-night journey through Paris.
This is modern cutting-edge music of the highest order, not avant-garde exactly, but beautiful instrumental sounds inspired by new age, rock, jazz, pop, classical, ambient-space and several other genres -- all swirled together on one very-contemporary recording.
Take a listen to this new recording and let the many sounds and feelings flow over you. This is masterful new music -- very European, modern and just plain different-sounding, but in a good way. It sort of has that same feeling that made Thomas Dolbyís first album sound unique three decades ago (but without vocals). Somehow the sounds capture the ebb and flow, intensity and energy of a big, busy, European city. Gronau mostly plays piano, synth and organ, but there are a variety of other sounds (real and synthesized) including sax, guitar, drums, bass, percussion and more.
This German musician really has created an unusual work of art here. It is sort of like when Picasso and the Cubists and the Dadaists exploded in Paris and left the artistic world reeling from their modern approaches, and it took a decade or two for their impact to be fully felt. Donít wait twenty years. Jump on board with this progressive music and ride the wave now.
You can find the music at his website in Germany uwe-gronau(dot)de and other online stores.
