Cycles 7-16 is a natural progression from Matt Dunkley’s debut solo album, Six Cycles, released on Village Green in 2016. Like the debut, it was recorded in Berlin with the German Film Orchestra Babelsberg. It retains the majestic, cinematic orchestral mood of Six Cycles, no doubt appealing to fans of the soundtrack work of Hans Zimmer and Clint Mansell and the contemporary classical stylings of Yann Tiersen and Ludovico Einaudi. As well as being almost double the length, Cycles 7-16 boasts a broader sonic palette than its predecessor, such as the full symphony orchestra on Cycle 12 and the seven solo pianos used on Cycle 14. On others, Matt returns to his classical roots, using a string chamber orchestra on Cycle 11 and Cycle 16.
