Piano Soundtracks for your Imagination. If you love the piano and ambient musical soundscapes, then you'll love this album! Dim the lights, open that bottle of wine and relax to Rob's dynamic and yet mellow piano playing mixed with the ambient sound textures of 'Pianoscapes'. Rob Russell Davies is a classically trained musician, composer and songwriter whose spent many years playing in bands, shows and studios in the UK and South Africa. He's won international awards as a songwriter, has appeared in cabaret venues, clubs and holiday resorts as a solo entertainer and is in demand as a writer, arranger and computer programmer in recording studios. With 'Pianoscapes' Rob returns to his first loves: the piano, composing and arranging. Different styles blend easily together in these instrumentals, all linked by Rob's characteristic piano playing and sound arranging. There's the African influence of 'Distant Drums' and 'Bad Muti', the South American sound of 'Won't You Bossa Nova?' and a jazz / swing beat to 'Was it all For Love?' Sometimes the piano stands elegantly alone as in 'Downstream', 'Breeze', 'Survivor' and 'I Could Never Wait For You'. A haunting piano-based reworking of the award winning 'Let Me Find Peace' is included, and to end off... Rob's tribute to the great movie composer Ennio Morricone - 'Ennio's Theme'. A piece of music that hopefully the great man himself will enjoy! Here's what people are saying about PIANOSCAPES: For many people, the piano is the most wonderful-sounding instrument ever invented! Rob not only delivers a great sounding piano, but takes it a few steps further with breathtaking melodies, wonderful instrumental soundscapes and top-class playing. This is the kind of album you lose yourself in. Painting with music! If you can't relax to this music... you've reached the medical help stage! The tendency with ambient soundscapes can be to let the music drift aimlessly. PIANOSCAPES is very different in that it's built around well thought out melodies, top class arrangements and great musicianship. PIANOSCAPES combines 3 of the greatest things in music. The sound of the piano, inspiring melodies and wonderful chordal soundscapes. Breathtakingly beautiful! Credit crunch! Falling house prices! Food costing more! Anecdote... sit back, close your eyes and escape with... PIANOSCAPES.
