Elevator: Experimental Easy Listening
"Beauty in music is too often confused with something that let's the ear lie back in an easy chair." - Charles Ives Some have made the claim that adult light contemporary music is in danger of losing it's edge. This new collection of experimental easy-listening pieces from Jess Rowland should lay to rest once and for all these nagging concerns. At every turn the boundaries of "elevator music" are pushed to the breaking point, smashing through outdated notions and pulverizing the sonic equivalent of the cubicle partition that has constrained serious easy-listening music for far too long. The next time you are on hold or browsing through the produce aisle, or even in the doctor's waiting room, perhaps instead of hearing elevator music, you will simply hear ELEVATOR. Suitable for home or office, ELEVATOR is sure to be just the thing you need. Relax, sit back, and let the music do the rest. ELEVATOR was created using digitally manipulated shards of muzak, light jazz radio, and easy-listening records mixed with live recording (including guitars, keyboards, piano and prepared piano, drums and percussion). Thanks for listening -.
