Erik Grisworld - All's Grist That Comes To The Mill [Room 40 Promo]

Put on the circuit via the Australian Room 40 imprint on March 20th, 2k20 is "All's Grist That Comes To The Mill", the latest album outing by ever active composer Erik Grisworld who's catering a menu of thirteen new pieces including a short intro and three interludes spread out over the course of roughly 47 minutes total whilst exploring a beautiful, somewhat isolationist sonic realm of desolate Dark Ambient / Deep Listening Music and full on experimentalism with cuts like the yearning, ethereal "The Hive" which weighs in a heavenly, yet also unsettling take on heavenly droning whilst the subsequent "Forest Birds" provide a minimalist, crystalline variation of tender piano meets harp mystique for an attentive audience. Further favorites include the multilayered, psychoactive and chaotic sci-fi midrange inferno of "Crashing Waves", the metallic ritualism of "Interlude 2 - Grader Blader" whilst "Three Great  Parlour Themes" is committing interesting alterations and poking fun at classic piano themes to a great effect and therefore is our top pick on this longplay piece for a reason.
