Always an experience worth sitting down for, or isolating oneself for a while. In this case, Less Mindless Mind comes through with the tack, the accompaniment and extension of the breath-takingly beautiful Jerusalem
You can hear the very playing of the keys within Jerusalem, the mildly chaotic repetition of those descending notes, accompanied and contrasted by the smooth, elongated presentation of the strings – a recognizable artist trait.

The final minute is approached with gentle chaos, rising intensity, before a return to the now peaceful seeming space and softness that began the experience.
Less Mindless Mind is a talented artist from the UK who makes music as a hobby. As an artist inspired by classic music you can feel he puts his heart and soul when making new music.

The ambient version that finishes up the release takes a more distant, reverb-soaked and rather dreamlike approach – letting those haunting notes and that energy rain down in a slightly more all-encompassing manner. It seems like such a simple way to create, but the effect is immense, and always beautiful. Consistently a pleasure to escape into..
