New York based multi-instrumentalist and performer Spencer Zahn has announced the release of a new album called Pale Horizon which will be out on May 13th via Cascine. According to the press release, it emerged from a series of piano sketches born of daily improvisations in Kingston, New York, where he relocated during the pandemic after 14 years in the buzz of Brooklyn.
Inspired by the space and pace of upstate life, he explored a more restrained, resonant mode of playing, letting chords delay all the way to silence, until the seeds of songs took shape. Zahn accompanied himself on upright bass, finessing each piece without cluttering it, focusing on the notion of “the instrument in a room.”
Check the new excerpts “Wake” and “Goodnight, Faintly.”
