Next Waves on 7 July 2024 – Classical Glass Special!

The next Waves is just around the corner. Just as you know it, it features relaxing beats as well as captivating melodies. But this time there’s once again more to it: Classical Glass is one of my favourite contemporary composer and he is doing all of his work without any monetary interest. It’s pure art. So I invited him back – after the special I made in 2021 – to be my guest. And I’m still excited to play his pieces that can calm you down instantly.

If you don’t know him, you can get a glance with these words:

Philip Dupuis (Classical Glass) is a multi-instrumentalist and composer from Canada who specializes in melodic minimalist pieces that attempt to tell a musical story within each piece through tonal and dynamic variations. Philip believes that music, at its best, conveys beauty in a way that no other art form can. As such he agrees with the English poet John Keats who proclaimed “Beauty is truth, truth beauty — that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know”.

Philip began his musical life as a percussionist but fell in love with the piano in his late teens. Since then he has worked on embellishing his piano works with other keyboard sounds from a number of different synthesizers to create a unique atmospheric quality to music. 

And you can always hear his atmospheric style desribed here! If you don’t believe, you can listen to some of his tracks on Soundcloud.

So sit back and tune into FriskyRadio CHILL on Sunday, July 7th, 2024 at 7 a.m. ESST / 1 p.m. CEST and enjoy this Ambient/Chillout special on Waves!

Ludovico Einaudi – Una Mattina (Played by Addliss)

In November or so I recorded „Una Mattina“, but hesitated to upload it, since it was not perfect. It still isn’t, but I recorded a pretty good version and I’m satisfied for now. Maybe you like this version since it’s a bit different from the original.

On a side note I found out, Einaudi mostly sounds good with very bright pianos. The mellow pianos don’t fit most of his music.
