New album pre-orders available

Post by Sean Shibe » Sun Sep 16, 2018 5:36 pm

Hey people,

My second album with Delphian Records - softLOUD - is available to pre-order! It'll then arrive on 21st September. I'm really proud of the work on it and hope you'll enjoy it too. Steve Reich wrote of this recording of Electric Counterpoint: "“Wow! I thought I’d take a dutiful listen and couldn't get my headphones off. Sean Shibe has made one of the best recordings of Electric Counterpoint ever!"

This month's Gramophone Magazine review here: https://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/softloud

The gentle beauty of Scottish lute manuscripts and of two short instrumental solos by James MacMillan is confronted by, and holds its own against, music by New York-based composers Julia Wolfe – a work of cathartic grief and anger originally scored for nine bagpipes – and David Lang, whose electric violin work Killer is iron-clad in its abrupt fury. Shibe has arranged all of this music himself, and presents it here alongside a breathtaking recording of Steve Reich's now classic Electric Counterpoint. 'Have we today forgotten how to speak with grace,' Shibe asks, 'or is the real danger that we aren't screaming loudly enough?'
