(SXSW 2017 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #2331: Ryan Vail

By on Friday, 31st March 2017 at 6:00 pm

Derry electronic musician, composer and producer Ryan Vail was one of a handful of wonderful electronic acts I caught at SXSW 2017 who I couldn’t get enough of. Something I love about electronic composers is that they never seem to stop working. In honour of World Piano Day on Wednesday, the Northern Irish artist revealed two songs, one brand new and the other a rework of a previously released song, ‘East Berlin’.

The original of the two, instrumental ‘We Drift We Wake’, has an accompanying black and white promo video. The series of visuals chosen, showing both the natural and manmade world, provide the perfect foil to Vail’s composition, which darts in and out of, then above the shadows. Moments of broodiness morph into more uplifting ones before the song concludes with a softer, delicious delicacy. Watch the video below.
