A warm whisper sifts through raindrops as dawn’s breath dances across glistening piano arrangements and ephemeral spaces. Rösner’s approach with “Ripples on Time” ground it with an air of chance, the piece beginning life as a loose piano improvisation that holds up a meticulous house of sonic elements. It’s a theme throughout his forthcoming album, Empty, Expanding, Collapsing, and “Ripples on Time” brings it in spades. This emotive piece grows with slow intent, each layer bringing wistful beauty and tension until it all fades into dust.
Empty, Expanding, Collapsing will be released March 4, 2023, on Room 40. Pre-order HERE.
