Travelogue is the first album by 26-year-old Portland composer Derek Hunter Wilson. By turns harrowing, poignant, and restrained, it is remarkably accomplished for a debut. Centered around Derek's masterful piano playing, Travelogue also features accompaniment on violin by Peter Broderick (Erased Tapes, Beacon Sound) as well as field recordings, cello, harp, and synthesizers. One of the most interesting musical conversations happening today is in the dynamic meeting ground where modern composition and experimental/ambient music overlap. This collection of songs adds to that conversation, alongside recent work by Julia Kent, Max Richter, and Jóhann Jóhannsson, while retaining its own sense of style and place. Embedded in the rainy ethos of contemporary Cascadia, listening to Travelogue brings to mind watching the cranes work through a water streaked window. Cover painting by Jason Vance Dickason; Design by Bijan Berahimi. Includes two-sided Risograph-print insert and download card; Edition of 500.
