Info for Sun, Cloud

„Sun, Cloud“ is jazz pianist and composer Luke Howard's recording from 2013. This set of pieces is intriguingly downbeat, and as well as piano the instrumental mix includes celeste, string quartet and electronics.

In 1802 a chemist and amateur meteorologist named Luke Howard presented a paper recommending a new system of classifying clouds, using the names cumulus, stratus and cirrus...

Recorded in Melbourne, Oslo and Reykjavík, pianist/composer Luke Howard's inaugural solo album draws upon the minimalist approach of his previous projects, conjuring rich cinematic soundscapes using piano, strings and electronics.

The record features members of the Melbourne Symphony and Oslo Philharmonic, along with past collaborators Janos Bruneel and Leonard Grigoryan.

“Absolutely heavenly... I can hotly recommend.” (Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC Radio)

Luke Howard
studied classical piano as a child before graduating with honours from the Victorian College of the Arts. He was twice a finalist in the Montreux Jazz Festival Solo Piano Competition and has written music for both film and theatre.

In recent years Luke has opened for Benjamin Clementine and Ben Frost, and performed with artists as diverse as Lior and Jeff Mills. His music has been described as “totally sublime” (Headphone Commute, February 2014), “absolutely heavenly” (Mary Anne Hobbs, July 2013), and “cinematic in its approach” (The Age, October 2009).

Luke divides his time between Europe and Australia. In 2013 he released the Australian Music Prize long-listed record Sun, Cloud. Luke’s score to Where Do Lilacs Come From won Best Music for a Short Film at the 2014 APRA/AMCOS Screen Music Awards. His second solo album, Two Places, was released in April 2016.
