Michael Price – Enlightenment (4 stars)

Composer well know for his film and TV work evokes comparison to Tangerine Dream

Michael Price – Enlightenment

(Erased Tapes)

His career in film music spans two decades, including work with Michael Kamen on Event Horizon, David Arnold on the Sherlock television series and as a music editor on the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but this will be the first album proper from British composer Michael Price. Based around his piano playing and synthesiser programming, Peter Gregson’s cello and Ashley Knight’s fragile soprano on ‘Maitri’ and ‘The Uncertainty Principle’, as well as a number of string players, it’s a purely classical experience which still bears degrees of comparison with the ambient electronic explorations of Tangerine Dream.
