About her choice to perform and record the Nyman selection, Wagner offered the following statement via email:
“The hit of The Piano that I heard a thousand times, that I loved to my great surprise to rediscover. I pulled the piece towards a softer, poetic sound, the sound of a ‘classical’ musician, quite far from Nyman’s own ‘pop’ sound. It is a wave, soft and fluffy, which submerges and comes with its colours and sea spray to tell of an inner flight.”
If you’d like to hear more from Inland, visit the InFiné Bandcamp page, where you can stream selections by Louis Hardin (a.k.a. Moondog) and Bryce Dessner. You also can hear those tracks on Spotify and other streaming music services.
