With album titles like Music From The Multiverse and Away From The Many, pianists Aaron Dolton and Richard X Bennett have clearly informed us that they draw from sacred places within as they compose and play their music. Recently the two connected via digital means and began to collaborate. What began as a simple track remix became a full length album of reinvention as they both found common experience and expression.
It’s like waking up as another person. Who wouldn't want that. It is me, but it’s not me. (Richard X Bennett)
I found the existing structures fantastic to work against; composing, editing and then gaining feedback on the changes. (Aaron Dolton)
And so we present to you Wood/Water: A unique project from two creative minds searching to make beauty from life's challenges, and finding that the process has endless permutations.
The mood: Reflective expression, ambient with a groove.
