Editors’ Notes Forward-facing Italian alt-classical musician Ludovico Einaudi incorporates both cinematic and literary aspects into his memorable, atmospheric pieces. Einaudi earned a degree in composition from the Milan Conservatory, so the Turin native brings a broad knowledge and deep appreciation of the European classical canon to his contemporary aesthetic and film and TV scoring. Literature is part of the family business. His father was an editor; Einaudi has based his projects on works by writers including Virginia Woolf and, for In a Time Lapse, Henry David Thoreau. “Time Lapse” percolates in a primordial electronic fog before a rush of piano, carefully placed electric guitar lines, and sustained strings arise. “Discovery at Night” carries the melodicism of ‘70s piano-based adult rock, while “Waterways” manages to capture the constant flow of water through a gentle synthesized bass drum. Violinist Daniel Hope solos on “Life,” “Orbits,” “Experience,” and “Underwood.”
