Steven Deacids project For Solacing Grief has its source in minimalist tone creations made by two guitars. At first glance the works appear rather simply, but a more precisely view discloses manifold dreamworlds.
They show, how work in seclusion without any restriction can result in the joy of a momentary self-losing. The intuitive use of only a few musical resources is an important part of this creative process. It is about to just let go, to create flowing forms and interlinked structures in the end.
For Solacing Griefs music appears as a haven of ease. By drifting slowly in emerging sounds the time dissolves. This lightheartedness affords space for breathing. Melodies and harmonies unfold. Smaller details gain significance in this ambience and generate specific effects. Particular moments are captured. The otherwise easily unseen is in the focus here and becomes the overall concept of the arrangements.
