roznockcocaep The sound of the piano feeling slightly detuned, the atmospheric and intimate nature of the composing.. It's a beautiful and haunting project that really takes me to a solemn, contemplative mindset. It's like mindfulness in musical form. Favorite track: Iconic Portraits Mutilated During the Spanish Civil War.

Charlie Moonbeam John Carroll Kirby emits a sensitivity that is so striking and absorbing.

This is another masterful record.

naturarum Incredible composition. A peaceful break in time, a bubble for your deep inner thoughts to comfortably surface. Like an echo of the Köln Concert. Favorite track: Anthony Joshua In My House (Anthony Joshua At Home).

“Absorb the pain and react smoothly… don’t become distracted by the white noise of possibilities… experience a flow-like state, even an Ultra Instinct” — Platinum Mike Perry

The collection of instrumental piano-based pieces, Kirby says, is the outcome of “trying to accept the duality of the world, and through that find peace”. Though he recorded Conflict about a year ago, Kirby decided to spontaneously release it in response to the escalating global crisis, with the hope that it might help fortify the listener and induce inner calm.
