FIELDS AMAZE and other sTRANGE music Showcases Patrick Grant’s Revival Skills In Latest Album

5 Nov

A re-release of an album created 20 years ago points to the newness of something once created and spun into a different light. A wide variety of musical instruments line up on the album with no importance specifically set on one particular sound, but together forming a masterpiece. The album is a mixture of the old revived tracks and new ones. This adds a level of interest that’s higher than presenting a remixed collection. The release of this album alongside the sound complements the compilations of A Sequence of Waves in 2017 and Tilted Across in 2016 The musical arrangement on FIELDS AMAZE and other sTRANGE music  is the most fascinating quality about this collection of music. It mixes the simplicity of minimal classical music, allusions to the 1970s and 1980s video games, and the soundtracks of horror films. Patrick Grant’s musical abilities will not only impress listeners, but just give them another thing to love about this revamped and reconstructed piece of work.

Enter A Whole New World In FIELDS AMAZE and other sTRANGE With Patrick Grant’s Newest Album

24 Sep

When people hear remakes, sequels, or redos of any kind, most likely the first reaction that will come out of this will be an eye roll or a defiant, you can’t get better than the first one. For this album, the remake is an extension of the original.Composer Patrick Grant has remade his FIELDS AMAZE album with a newly titled collection called FIELDS AMAZE and other sTRANGE music after 20 years and it sounds superb. Listeners should clear a space and not be distracted, as listening to the album under anything other than these conditions will not give Grant the credit he deserves with this wonderful masterpiece. From certain tracks that are mostly simply piano to the complex ones that have a variety of piano overtures, musicians, music aficionados, and the piano connoisseur will all express the sentiments of satisfaction after listening to Grant’s newest creation. The album is set to release October 1st, so eager audiences will have to wait a little bit longer, but in the meantime can listen to his previously released album, A Sequence of Waves (twelve stories and a dream). With a mixture of homages to 60s and 70s cinema and the traditional piano overtures, Grant excels at arranging all of these tracks into more than a remake, but rather a collection of new tracks.
