PadraigC Bought this a while back, only listening to it properly now, it is vey beautiful, full of emotion and gorgeous piano playing. I think the sound production is just perfect for the piano and the interspersed field recordings are a nice touch as well. Favorite track: Dream.

This album is a collection of improvised pieces on piano by Alejandro Bento. Originally recorded in 2008 with very minimal technical capabilities, 200 copies were made and given away to old and new friends. We have remastered it for a digital only release.

Note for audiophiles: we acknowledge the sound quality is not at it's best, however, we have received such great feedback from all those friends who own a copy, having felt really touched by the purity and innocence of the expression, that we felt it necessary to share it with a wider audience, for free.

Art by Regina de Jimenez, "Untitled". 12"x12" prints available in our store.
