Demo Tracks and Info
‘Undersail’ is a daring and utterly captivating instrumental music voyage drawing its inspiration from the fateful voyage of the Titanic on the 15th April 1912. Indeed, the release date coincides with the 100th anniversary of the tragic event. Melodic, atmospheric and thoroughly enchanting, ‘Undersail’ perfectly captures the essence of its epic subject matter.
The music of Steve Orchard has always been very organic, with the emphasis primarily on acoustic guitar dominated compositions. But on ‘Undersail’, he dramatically expands his musical horizons with beautifully layered synths and varied rhythms giving the music a much broader, and at times epic scope befitting the concept. Steve’s excellent acoustic guitar work is still in evidence, but here it takes second stage to the exquisite compositions, production and the sheer scope of the music which drifts gently and elegantly between ethereal, gently rhythmic and the thematic.
This is multi-textured and symphonic instrumental music that is certain to have cross genre appeal – from acoustic rock to Mike Oldfield to Vangelis to New Age – ‘Undersail’ is a beautiful gem that ebbs and flows with tides of emotion and a depth of beauty and imagination that will amaze and delight and it is, without question, the best music of Steve’s illustrious musical career.
