Video Premiere: “Swells” by Adam Daudrich

Moderna Records‘ Fall 2019 single series has gotten off to a fine start with releases thus far by Hiroco.M (Hiroko Murakami) and Jacob David and now Montreal-based pianist Adam Daudrich. “Swells” is a selection from Daudrich’s solo release ‘The Wooden Box‘ which explores the use of muted upright piano, harmonium, and Wurlitzer electric piano in the telling of “intimate stories” and what he calls “adult nursery rhyme” and “fading music-box songs”.  It is a lovely piece with cascading, arpeggiated patterns of shimmering notes and feather-light percussive textures. “Swells” is delicate yet full of movement and finds a perfect match in this mesmerizing video shot on the Berlin S-Bahn by photographer & filmmaker Emma Roufs.
