Macbride, David – “a Special LIght” – [Innova Recordings]

A Special Light by David MacBride is a collection of solos and duets spanning the last decade. Throughout, the artist explores his relationship with his Chinese heritage (his mother was from China, his father from Scotland): a relationship he had never directly addressed in his work before. “All of these pieces,” he tells us, “reflect in one way or another Chinese musical and cultural traditions as I become more comfortable being direct in personalizing recognizable Eastern styles and aesthetics.” Ultimately, the aim of the music is for what the artist calls “a basic sense of serenity and focus.” MacBride’s work has been described as ambient, minimalist, luminous and impressionistic.
