dustin o'halloran Lumiere (LP, £25.50)label: Cobraside
A third full-length for the solo piano performer turned orchestral arranger. This album features Stars Of The Lid founder Adam Wiltzie, Bella Union / Type composer Peter Broderick, neo-classicist Nils Frahm, Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson, and New York’s acclaimed ACME quartet (Grizzly Bear, Nico Muhly, Matmos). Dustin scored Sofia Coppola’s film ‘Marie Antoinette’ (2006) and William Olsen’s ‘An American Affair’ (2010). "A procession of twinkling chamber arrangements poised between pensiveness and chocolate box romanticism" **** - Mojo, "Within the illusory minimalism of O'Halloran's compositions lies absolute gravitas. Even the breezier tracks from ‘Lumiere’ are loaded with intensity and beauty" - The Line Of Best Fit, “Expansive, utterly flawless music” - Fluid Radio.
