Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Composer and musician Kim Halliday’s latest Ravello release, Halflight, reveals a composer of our age, bringing together progressive rock, electronic and ambient music, and film music. He uses a range of instruments, from guitar and piano to sound loops and synthesizers to drum machines and narration. These works, entrenched in mystery, suggest emotions that may be real or delusional. These pieces, easily self-sustaining and satisfying on their own, carry an atmosphere and tone of thrill and complexity which give them the ability to work within a number of film settings.
Personnel: Kim Halliday (guitar, keyboards, programming, loops); Martin Lister (guitar, keyboards, drums, programming, loops).
Arrangers: Martin Lister; Kim Halliday.
