The mallet percussionist and improviser's solo debut is flush with nostalgic melodies and stirring dissonances—a rich, experimental universe well worth exploring. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 15, 2021
I am new to the music of Alex Ward. But I stumbled upon this album and was intrigued. So glad I bought it.
He is obviously an advanced player with a lot of technique. Like most great artists though none of that ends up mattering. These three songs made me chuckle. with joy. In a way I do not generally expect from this type of music. The last song had me on the edge of my seat. The space between the sounds is engaging and builds suspense. This is definitely worth adding to your collection. liclon
