Recorded over 2012 in Melbourne, Oslo and Reykjavík, pianist/composer Luke Howard's inaugural solo album, Sun, Cloud, draws upon the minimalist approach of his previous projects, conjuring rich cinematic soundscapes using piano, strings and electronics. Featuring standouts "A Softer World" and "Portrait Gallery," Sun, Cloud was long-listed for the 2013 Australian Music Prize. Available on vinyl for the first time courtesy of Mercury KX.
"Luke's music is majestic, thought-provoking... Fans of classical soundtrack composers like James Newton Howard should relish in the subtle pianos and poignant string melodies that Luke unfolds, in what is an absolutely superb debut solo album." – Ryan Griffin, A Strangely Isolated Place
"A wholly immersive, resplendent listen, utilising minimalist contemporary classical recording techniques with a ten-piece ensemble. For fans of Max Richter..." – Tim Boddy, The 405
"A lovely album from start to finish, Sun, Cloud is at times achingly beautiful... a sense of awe akin to that of discovery." – Richard Allen, A Closer Listen
