today’s tunes: Spark – by Niklas Paschburg

I heard this song the other day on “All Songs Considered” on NPR with Bob Boilen, and just loved it.  I found the video later and love the nautical theme as well! the song is an instrumental, an ambient soothing blend of piano and synthesizer.  from the NPR site:

Niklas Paschburg is a German composer woven from a similar cloth as Nils Frahm, Daniel Wohl and other artists who stand at the intersection of classical and electronic music. The gorgeous, wayward “Spark,” from his debut album, Oceanic (out Feb. 9 on 7K!), captures the atmosphere of the Baltic Sea coast where he recorded it.

    Very nice, will look out for that: it seems we have similar musical tastes. The classical / EDM boundary is an interesting place to be at the moment, and there are common roots from mininimalism. A few years ago I went to an acoustic gig of the group Above and Beyond which was interesting as two of them have classical training

      JP, I’ll look them up, haven’t heard of them. part of why I’ve always like The National is their classical roots – like the side project “Clogs”, almost all instrumental songs, but just great for background noise and calming music.

    My people hail from a small island (Sanda) in the Baltic, now uninhabited except for Summer, as it’s now a State Park (Sweden).
    Was it just me, or did it look like those fishermen in the music video could really use some work gloves? And I hope they get at least 2 or 3 euros per pound for those tiny little crabs. And; sorry, 1 star for the music.
