Spacebound Apes is a delectable inspiring story woven together with some of the most breathtaking music that pianist/composer Neil Cowley has created.
From start to finish, Spacebound Apes showcases Neil’s work as a dazzling composer of dynamic and cinematic music. Hypnotic passages create heart-pounding suspense while sweet, whispered themes create emotion-shattering empathy. Bold, bombastic tunes create drama, and in a departure from Cowley and his trio’s more usual acoustic setting, electronics orchestrate desolation and despair.
Spacebound Apes Live sees Neil Cowley Trio perform the new album in its entirety. The trio — long time band mates, Evan Jenkins on drums and Rex Horan on bass — are joined by Brian Eno collaborator Leo Abrahams on guitars and FX plus other guests and a specially designed light show. Together, they present a powerful, atmospheric and captivating musical tale.
