Performer Notes
  • This is a limited edition 2 CD set.
  • VERTIKAL features a solo piano performance by Mark Springer, recorded at Union Chapel Hall, London.
  • Personnel includes: Mark Springer (soprano saxophone, piano, piano harp); Clive Dreamer (drums); The Zoom Quartet (electronics).
  • On this diverse outing, Springer, the former keyboardist for Rip Rig & Panic, creates a sonic pastiche incorporating Coltrane-like jazz, Tricky-like hip-hop, and good old pop vibes. This 2004 set features "The Great Alone," "Bellbird," and 10 more.
  • Nature/Music/Food/The Stars and the Planets is a two-CD set. Disc one features Mark Springer on multi-tracked pianos, soprano saxophone, and piano harp. Drummer Clive Deamer adds his discreet touch on a few pieces, while Zoom Quartet provides soft electronica floorings on a few more. Disc two contains the two-part solo piano piece "Vertikal" (56 minutes total). Springer's music lies somewhere between instrumental new age and avant-garde. Usually tonal, it can take unexpected left turns, only to come back in the middle of the road a moment after. The first CD offers nice moments, like the opener, "Incision." Zoom Quartet's contribution is limited to an electronica background: reserved and forgettable. The whole disc falls into a niche of easy listening creative music, where half-baked ideas can be drowned by concern for the listener (Carolyn Hume and Paul May's Zero belongs in the same category). "Vertikal" proves Springer's talent as a pianist, but its length makes it tiresome. Elements of Philip Glass, Peter Hammill, and Windham Hill artists come together in this piece. It was recorded on a Steinway piano in a chapel: The sound quality is fantastic. Nature/Music/Food/The Stars and the Planets is for the meditative music lover. ~ Fran‡ois Couture
