DAVID JOHN SHEPPARD VERTICAL LAND Limited Vinyl LP + Download

Overview:
· Multi-instrumentalist and composer David John
Sheppard will release his new album ‘Vertical Land’
through Village Green.
· The writer and orchestrator behind the acclaimed State River Widening, Ellis Island Sound, Snow Palms and Leaf recording artists Phelan/Sheppard, ‘Vertical Land’ will be Sheppard’s first bona fide solo album.
· Tracks were begun percussively by inserting pencils into guitars to make false bridges, then hammering the strings with vibraphone mallets, or by applying layers of masking tape to the strings of an upright piano in order to create a raw percussive instrument.
· Marimbas, glockenspiels and mountain dulcimers
were all attacked with a similar sense of primal reflex until the compositions were gradually built up, only to be stripped back down again in a very painterly process, to reveal new forms, combinations and colours.
· For fans of Cinematic Orchestra, Tortoise, Steve Reich and Phillip Glass.
· Download code included with LP version.
