(2014 Album Review) Yadayn- Vloed
Here is a lovely and worthy collection of neoclassical pieces for guitars: Belgian guitarist Yadayn’s debut recording Vloed.
This album is made up of gentle fingerpicking pieces for acoustic guitars, though there is some satisfying use of noise and hand percussion on a few tracks. Like most modern classical musicians, Yadayn’s style is minimal and repetitive. One feature of his music that is interesting is that often when a piece is making a transition, he conveys this with a pause. These pieces are just very fluid and well-paced, and Yadayn’s technique is fine indeed! I particularly liked the conclusion, “Sluimer”. Head on over to Yadayn’s bandcamp to buy a copy of the limited edition CD release of the album after you’ve listened.
