Hassell, Jon - Seeing Through Sound (Pentimento Volume Two)

“A companion piece to 2018’s Listening To Pictures, this second volume in the pentimento series presents eight new tracks by the music visionary, continuing his lifelong exploration of the possibilities of recombination and musical gene-splicing. Pentimento is defined as the “reappearance in a painting of earlier images, forms, or strokes that have been changed and painted over” and this is evident in the innovative production style that ‘paints with sound’ using overlapping nuances to create an undefinable and intoxicating new palette.”

“Maybe someday Jon Hassell will be recognized for what he is - one of the greatest composers of our age, a true musical pioneer. For now, however, only some of us lucky ones will enjoy the gift of this album and its window into the magic of the Fourth World.
Like Volume 1, this is another relatively short release with only eight tracks. There are no long musical journeys, just eight emotional sound pictures, seemingly from different periods of Hassell's career. There are different feelings to each composition, and there are no bad tracks. All roads lead to the finale, Timeless, which even without any of Hassell's signature trumpet, is a masterpiece, a thing of beauty with swirling rhythms and textures.“
