This is the third album by Broadway Project, and without doubt I will be checking out the other two. The brain child of Dan Berridge, who has scored for film, Channel 4 and the BBC, In Finite is a compelling left-of-field mix of electronic sounds, beats, jazz improv on an impressively grand scale. Broadway Project - In Finite
This is the third album by Broadway Project, and without doubt I will be checking out the other two. The brain child of Dan Berridge, who has scored for film, Channel 4 and the BBC, In Finite is a compelling left-of-field mix of electronic sounds, beats, jazz improv on an impressively grand scale. Huge, dark melancholy sounds loom out of the speakers and fill the spaces around you ("K"). Mutating and changing, a Matthew Bourne episode on piano gives way to the ethereal, heavenly host sounds of Kriwaczek's flute.

Gradually these shifting moods are given impetus with beats ("Partisans") but all the time these dense moods and shifting textures hold your attention, insinuating themselves into your consciousness. These are indeed portraits of the infinite - panoramic soundtracks for a film yet to made that while probing deeply into your psyche with their multitude of meanings can be ultimately uplifting.
