Luke Howard - Hymn

Luke Howard - Hymn
Hailing from Melbourne, Luke Howard is an Australian Music Prize-nominated composer whose music has been described as “absolutely heavenly”(Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC Radio 6 Music) and “an ambient masterclass” (Musos’ Guide), but no words can fully capture the potency of his enthralling compositions. A pianist since childhood, Luke has scored films and performed with artists as diverse as Lior and Jeff Mills, capturing audiences with contemporary classical arrangements that curl and twist around the boundaries of different emotions. Luke Howard is one of Australia’s foremost practitioners of contemporary classical music. Having already accomplished so much and with more on the horizon, he is set to captivate audiences worldwide with his latest music, ‘Open Heart Story’.

Written at a time of introspection and self-reflection, Luke's new album Open Heart Story explores fragmented relationships, childhood memories and getting older. Nearly the compositions started as improvisations on the piano, some of which were then arranged for a 23 piece string orchestra.

About this track...

23 piece-string orchestra arrangement, Throughout its almost-six-minute journey, Hymn rises and falls through orchestral landscapes that feel as bold and impactful as they are intricate and delicate, increasing and decreasing in intensity as it draws longer. It’s based around a meditative two-bar pattern, increasing and then decreasing in density.
