Folds: the new full-length solo album from Nathan Shubert
Later this month, Shubert releases Folds, his debut full-length solo album of original modern classical music. With a rich history of making music in Vancouver (including collaborations with No Sinner, David Newberry, Jody Glenham, Lydia Hol and Minto), Shubert steps into the solo spotlight.
There's an appealing subtlety to Folds, a muted chain of pieces that wavers between improvisation and a feeling of familiarity. "Expressive and accessible, Nathan wrote these pieces purely for the pleasure and beauty inherent in them, not as exercises in composerly rigor or pianistic dexterity. Free of external meanings, the pieces take on their own deeply implicit, wordless significance. These pieces became Folds."
