How far I've come since I defined "ambient" primarily by Brian Eno's "Music for Airports" and Aphex Twin's "Selected Ambient Works." This is a really beautiful record.
Favorite track: a candy coated october.
woodworkings is the neoclassical and ambient music of Kyle Woodworth. "day breaks the morning shapes we speak" features much of its predecessor’s strong base of piano, cellos and guitars, but makes significant departures in tonal shifts, song structure, themes, scope and ambition. The new album is about distance and states — meaning both state of place and state of mind. At the end it is a tired and quiet triumph, but a triumph nonetheless, and "day breaks the morning shapes we speak" may offer the most beautiful tracks woodworkings has released yet.
