Today I’m presenting you to the latest track by the Australian musician, producer and piano player Richard LaBrooy. Richard was one of the first people who reached out to me to be featured on the blog, and we have also managed to make a track together a while back. If you want to know everything about Richard and his music, I suggest you check out this Behind the piano post!
The track The witch was released as a single on august 22nd of 2020.
Tell us something about the track The Witch!
Writing The Witch has been incredibly fun for me. What I ended up writing was fairly different to my previous releases, but I think what I took from it was another step in unexplored territory for myself. The piece plays with a duality between bittersweet innocence, and that of a darker and somewhat fantastical persona. Production seems to be playing a larger role in the neoclassical genre, and that’s exciting for me. Some purists tend to stick to the solo piano, and I there’s definitely a place for that. But the blending of organics and machine is often the source of inspiration for me, and The Witch was definitely another step in that direction.
Thanks for this buddy!
