POPPY ACKROYD (UK)
A year after ‘Resolve’ was released to critical acclaim, breath-taking post-classical artist Poppy Ackroyd releases ‘Resolve Reimagined’ with One Little Indian Records.
The ground-breaking album explores life's constant challenges, and many of the songs are extremely personal to Poppy. In her own words: “Resolve is about the determination to embrace the good things in life whilst dealing with unexpected and challenging difficulties. Finding the light in the dark, facing sadness and loss head on, and developing a growing inner strength.”
Ackroyd creates percussive textures from traditional classical instruments, and the result is almost the emulation of an entire orchestra, using very few instruments combined with the artist’s incredible production skills.The gifted artist works by recording improvised contemporary classical piano motifs and then rearranging and manipulating these sounds digitally.The result is a fantastic fusion of acoustic and electronic in a post-classical setting.
