Paradise Shadow

Prolific French artist Jérémie Grandsenne's Paradise Shadow is a sixteen minute long continuous and beautifully spare piano composition; to relate it to another pianist we've recently covered, FAVRTSM, this work is much less spontaneous, composed along classical lines. Released on a 3" CD-R, Paradise Shadow is unfortunately sold out, but you can still check out some of the music. Here's what Tennessee psych-label Kimberly Dawn had to say about it...
Accomplished French artist Jérémie Grandsenne presents this brief piece of introspective solo piano music to get lost in. His understated playing leaves room for the listener to settle into a mood of existential wandering and reflection. No accompaniment or embellishment is needed - this is a pure statement of singularity. Presented in a numbered edition of 50 hand stamped 3" cdrs.
Update: All of Paradise Shadow is now available to stream on  Jérémie's bandcamp page.
