Alexander Chapman Campbell: Sketches of Light

Atmospheric piano pieces from an emerging composing talent.

The young Guernsey-born pianist and composer Alexander Chapman Campbell is just emerging from hours of solitary composing to make his music more widely available.

His album, titled Sketches of Light, consists of 12 piano pieces which depict light at different times of day, in different settings and encompassing varying atmospheric conditions.

Comparisons to other composers who produce hypnotic, repetitive - but infinitely tuneful - piano music are inevitable, but Chapman Campbell's pieces have a haunting quality and emotional resonance that deserve repeated listening.
