Mirek Coutigny is an interesting Belgian composer and pianist. His main influences are artists like Ólafur Arnalds, Boards of Canada and Jóhann Jóhannsson. Revisions #1 is the debut EP which is out now. His words about it:
“As a composer and musician, you’re constantly involved in all kinds of projects, writing music along the way. The result is hours and hours of music that is performed only a few times or maybe even discarded in the process. Musicians turn in beautiful performances of your music, and you have some live recordings lying around as proof. But in the end, it’s tough to build a recognizable musical identity as a composer through all of these projects, collaborations, and one-offs. Revisions #1 is my attempt to tighten up that image. I went through all the music I wrote between 2012 and 2015 and selected a few pieces that still resonate with who I am today“.
Watch the official video for the track “As The Birds Fly“. It was directed by Joachim Dejonghe. The track shows restless ambient textures with dynamic refined piano lines.
