The Thesis Project is the mother lode of beautiful music
I've mentioned music from Thesis Project in various posts on this site, but it's getting to where I'm listening to so much of it, I want to give it its own thread, and start highlighting all of the gorgeous music I'm listening to.
Thesis Project is a series of collaborations between musicians often slotted under genres like ambient, minimalist, folk, and classical. I imagine reviewers often use the word 'cinematic' to describe their music.
Many of the recordings are comprised of only 3-5 tracks, and durations clocking in around the 20 minute mark. Some of the recordings, however, are compilations of various sorts, where an "album" might consist of four tracks of twenty minutes each and built around a certain theme. There are also some themes built around single moments of music. Honestly, I haven't researched this, and just going by what I've encountered so far and various emails I receive. I am still in the early stages of discovery of Thesis Project. What I am certain about is that this is some of the most gorgeous, and consistently compelling music I've encountered from any one single source. It's a rare thing. It's when you look back upon a year of Hubro Music or ECM Records releases and realize the breadth and beauty of what you've heard.
I believe the series is meant to be a vinyl-release thing. But there are a couple CD options, and, obviously, digital files, too.
Here's a link to their Bandcamp page. I am going to occasionally post something about a recording that I like.
