Curious, nice assembly of electronic and organic.

About the Album

Two years after 2011's "Clouds under the table ", highly appreciated by press and the public, "Flying and the silence" is the new, awaited chapter in Nheap's musical research. The fusion of modern sounds, such as ambient electronica and post-rock atmospheres, with suggestions of a more traditional kind, including jazz and funk, along with a deeper integration between synthetic and acoustic sounds, contributes to make this new album an extremely warm and organic work, where experimentation coexists with melodic and thematic research. Different atmospheres and moods always alternate in the course of the 10 tracks that make up the disc, all of which are tied by a distinctive and personal sound developed by Nheap over the years; that same sound which in this work is enhanced by a more pronounced presence of “traditional” instruments, side by side with modern electronic processing.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
