Album artwork for Like Water Through Sand by Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch is an award-winning French pianist / composer currently living in London. Spanning film score, bespoke composition and sound design, her work is connected by both its high quality and evocative, meticulous craft - a common sensibility of elegant, instinctual composition. Shifting fluidly from solo piano pieces (the churning 'The Sum Of Our Flaws' and 'Six Of Swords'; the poignant delicacy of 'Hands Closed Together' or 'Strelka') to stirring chamber pieces (the formal elegance of Cotidal Lines; the expansive 'Minnesang'; the stirring sweep of 'Sublimation') and foregrounding explorative electronic enhancements (the delay-aggregation of 'Tulsi', the pulse-driven 'Persephone' and 'Scale Of Volatility'), the album is broad-ranged and playful yet cohesive and fully formed.A gorgeously detailed and hugely impressive debut, 'Like Water Through The Sand' manages to sound at once fresh and familiar. It nestles comfortably within the contemporary cannon of post-classical producers / composers which 130701 played a formative part in helping establish (the adventurous modern landscape of Max Richter, Johann Johansson, Dustin O'Halloran, Hauschka, Nils Frahm, et al), and reveals a brilliant new voice to add to the firmament.
