The Art of Healing Piano
Rufus Lin’s latest album of healing piano music takes fans to new heights of musical expression, The eleven tracks are characterized by the ebb and flow of passion and restraint, informed by this pianist’s typical sensitivity. The result is a mix of soaring melodies, occasional counterpoint, complex harmonies and minimalistic ambient tones.
The music on this album makes clear that Rufus Lin’s compositions and improvisations have a far stronger classical music orientation than the work of many current neoclassical composers, which tend to incline toward cinematic or spa mood music, with a focus on ambience and repetition.
Distinctly Odd Records is an eccentric classical music recording label established by Canadian composer Rufus Lin
The aim is to record and distribute fresh interpretations of a wide range of classical music by Japanese and Korean musicians still relatively unknown in the English speaking world.The artists are professional musicians who generally perform and record in their own countries, so recordings under the Distinctly Odd label are both an excellent way for English speakers to get to know these fine musicians, as well as for the artists to begin making their mark internationally.
