Czech minimalist piano composer Borrtex presents his new solo record titled Harmony. Intense melancholic melodies flowing to the unpredictable, captivate with their uniqueness, sonicity, and precise arrangements. Recorded in the beautiful city of Prague, the whole album brings an interesting atmosphere evoking a scale of various mesmerizing emotions of nostalgia, sentimentality, hope, and optimism.

Harmony features twelve piano compositions varying in speed, intensity, performance, and style. Despite their differences, these songs create an amazing complex form, resonating as a palette of beautiful harmonious balance. Quick and striking keys including repetitive patterns and pulses typical for the minimalist approach are later replaced by softer and calmer themes, which culminate in acoustically tuned piano solo ballads in the second half of the album. These powerful and strongly characteristic musical ideas of this young aspiring artist, introduce a whole new perspective on the present neoclassical culture.

“This solo record is very special to me, most of the ideas came down pretty unexpected while I was improvising on my new custom-built acoustic upright piano. The creative process felt very enriching and liberating as there was no intention whatsoever, I was just enjoying the music and it all happened very naturally to me, which I find really inspiring. But it’s true that organizing these random ideas and arranging them in order to actually create a worthy composition, was quite a challenge! But eventually, I’m more than happy about how it all turned out. I truly do believe that my new work is going to bring value to other people and hopefully, they will enjoy it as well.” – Borrtex.
