Ohio-based pianist Tristan Eckerson is set to release a new full-length album of piano compositions titled Decades on February 7th. When asked about the album Eckerson states, “I wanted to create a set of songs that would stand alone as compositions in their own right and have some form of forward momentum, while also keeping to a very minimal, almost conceptual aesthetic. A big inspiration for this was Philip Glass and Ryuichi Sakamoto. I was aiming for the simultaneous ultra simplicity and profound impact that I find particularly in their solo piano works. And I wanted to use a production style that was more modern and brought an extra element and depth to the recordings, in terms of hearing the workings of the piano, atmosphere, etc. I wrote, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered the album myself.”

Today we have the pleasure of premiering the fifth track off the album, ‘Dolores Park’. A beautiful contemplative track that will leave you wanting to hear more. Check it out here:
