Hello! And welcome to the new sunwrae website!
2015 has been a busy year, launching the new double volume solo records & sheet music publication by Rae Howell, Invisible Wilderness Vol I & II ..
The manuscript book is our first official sheet music publication of 12 works (available now as a physical book and individual digital downloads from the shop~
Rae also completed a tour in Australia this year, stay tuned for more on the horizon..
Below are a couple of new clips of the music, we hope you enjoy!
Recorded over ten days in St Paul and Minneapolis (USA) in 2014, Invisible Wilderness is a diverse double volume solo album featuring a collection of Rae’s original piano and keyboard works from contemporary, popular and cinematic styles to jazz infused improvisations.
Complete with hand drawn illustrations (by Sandy Smith), Invisible Wilderness: Volume I was recorded on a Steinway concert grand and is accompanied by a sheet music publication that features 12 works in printed manuscript format. Volume II is more abstract, sidestepping the traditional piano sound, performed on a Fender Rhodes and various upright ramshackle pianos that immerse the listener in different textures, including the hammers, felts and pedalling (featuring the natural reverb of the sostenuto and celeste pedals).
These are currently for sale in the shop, as physical CDs and digital audio tracks.. as well as our back catalogue of Sunwrae Ensemble albums.
