M o o n i s t h e ol d e s t T V, the solo debut full-length from piano player / composer Luzius Schuler, is a record that harnesses the standard ingredients for neo-classical – electronic soundscapes and piano – to create a singular hybrid out of aesthetics a century apart. Think of it as a collision of contemporary impressionism – sound paintings utilising sound synthesis, noise, granular synthesis and field recordings – with its turn of the 20th century analog. If this music was an actual painting, it would be a canvas where a modern composition was meticulously applied over a vintage work with varying levels of opacity. But ultimately, this is a very poetic document of six months spent soaking up the city of Paris and writing music.
