New York City based musician Ben Seretan has announced a new album of Improvisational Piano and Field Recordings. It’s called Cicada Waves and will be out on April 30th via NNA Tapes. It is the first proper instrumental release since 2018’s enormous My Life’s Work (a 24-hour long album recorded over three consecutive nights, sunset to sunrise). Check the first excerpt “Fog Rolls Out Rabun Gap“.
He explains: “It was clear the moment I hit ‘record’ that any sound I captured from the piano would always carry some other sound with it. There would be no silence whatsoever. So I gave in—I threw open the windows and let the world in.”
