Experimedia presents the latest addition to Ian Hawgood's growing body of work, 'The Great Allure'. A very personal and heartfelt album, 'The Great Allure' amasses six passionate movements into a tribute to the memories of traveling by train. Inverted pianos wrapped in a blanket of distant fog seen peering through a train window dripping with wiped away condensation. Forehead against glass with a melancholy gaze towards the passing landscape. Broken voice and hand claps layer subtle nods to Reich. It is truly a privilege to present this particularly profound work of Ian's, a respected artist who has become a dear friend who I look forward to one day sharing a beer with.
