The Practise Of Suffering by BP Moore

BP Moore ~ The Practice of Suffering & Monaro

If albums are novels, EPs are short stories: a good one is concise and its meaning clear as glass. Here are two short EPs by multi-instrumentalist and composer BP Moore, whose gorgeous 2021 album If I Don’t See You Again and its equally compelling 2022 reworks collection have previously caught our attention. These two EPs are ostensibly on different themes, but there’s a thread that runs through both: self-discovery and acceptance.

ACL 2017 ~ Top Ten Modern Composition

Modern Composition was our hottest genre this year, with 28 albums nominated for only ten spots.  From solo piano to full orchestra, consonance to dissonance, giving up to going on, these picks represent a grand variety of composed sound.  Their

Leah Kardos ~ Rococochet

I thought I had the measure of Rococochet a few minutes into “Let Your Body”, a soothing opener of polyrhythmic ivories, mallets and skins that slowly unfurls to reveal increasingly vivid jazz-infused colours. Even as other, unexpected timbres join –
