Like the detailed audio universes of Hans Zimmer, you will see legendary visualization from Alec Berlin as well. Each song is a story, each note a parallel tale running. His compositions are truly revelatory, they create a picturesque setting in a balance. Known for his stylishly expressive guitar, he can capture a photograph with his music. His latest single is called LaNoise.
A soothing, relaxed vibe is felt instantly with a song like this. It propagates a scene that would be depicted as a lazy Sunday afternoon, having simple conversation. The cinematic element of Alec Berlin’s music is that the absent lyrics make for killer fillers. Your mind strays to find what would fit this cool jive. Though different in styles, I cannot help but remember Jeff Beck’s tide-changing guitar playing with this song. It is like witnessing an entire band express themselves through a string of notes. Like his other recent single I reviewed, Minir Maad, he brings the inspiration to you. Not straying at a distance from it, we are close enough for the visual to make sense.
When the strings sing
From Minir Maad, he has taken to you a hot day in the South with this EP. Compare, not for which tantalizes your senses more, but for the effort put in to make lucid, sterling arrangements. I would picture this song in The Boat that Rocked, the power of instrumental dictating the scene.
You can derive your own tale from his music, it is universal in that sense. Explore at your own leisure, and you might like an era of sound gone by, or something that already exists. Alec Berlin is always pushing the envelope with what he can do using his instrument. Get transported to distant lands with his latest EP’s title track, and much more! Be sure to follow, for this is one prolific musician.
