about

"Lunescapes Volume 1" marks Jeff Mercel's first full length solo release. He was the percussionist in the seminal band Mercury Rev during their "Deserter Songs" period and has composed multiple film scores over the last 10 years.

Working mostly on upright piano, Mercel creates a deep, pulsing, meditation that washes us in warm light on "Lunescapes Volume 1". Over 40 minutes, we are offered sprawling piano vignettes interwoven with minimal strings, synths and pedal steel. Mercel's compositions fit nicely between modern composers such as Max Richter or Johann Johannson and seventies new age masters like Harold Budd or Jordan De La Sierra.
