Tantalizing transformative sonic journey Nicholas Gunn – Sound Condition

Tantalizing transformative sonic journey Nicholas Gunn – SOUND CONDITION:  As we move on past the terrible times we have been living through, we all need hope for our future… as the liner notes for Nicholas’s tantalizing transformative sonic journey tell us, “the connections we make with each other and our natural world are central to our happiness“… since this album doesn’t officially release until February 12th, 2021, there aren’t any videos available for it yet, but I strongly recommend you watch “Chasing The Light”, from his exquisite “Pacific Blue” album to get a sense of the musical and creative mastery Nicholas plays with…

As you saw, the visuals are absolutely stunning… I also strongly recommend that you SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel… I’ve been subscribed there for a long time now.

One of the most calming (and hopeful) pieces of music I have listened to (yet) in 2020 features the amazing vocals of Nicholas’s friend Alina Renae… samples won’t be available for a month or so, but “Just Us” will reach down deep into your heart… I predict that this highly moving piece of music will be getting some MAJOR airplay from DJ’s (of all stripes) around the globe!

The introduction to “Shine” is a slow build of synth sounds and strings that incorporates simple keyboard structures against scintillating guitar lines… this composition will not allow you to “pigeonhole” it in any way… uniquely “Gunn”, it will help to lift you higher and higher each time you listen to it.

Angels” has another wonderful vocal performance from Alina, with stimulating washes of strings and strong beats supporting her singing… this is another tune that will be getting lots of airplay!

It wasn’t difficult (at all) to make my choice for personal favorite of the ten songs Nicholas offers up for our enjoyment… “Language” is best listened to with headphones, so you can catch every little nuance and note.  I especially enjoyed the stirring strings that move the beat on this tune – I have no doubt you will love them as well.

This is one of the absolute best new releases I’ve listened to for 2021… it gets a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.  Get more information at Nicholas’s website as it becomes available.                 Rotcod Zzaj
