Download the latest volume of d'Eon's <em>Music For Keyboards</em>

The Montreal pop-experimenter goes pastoral on Blackout.

d’Eon has described Music For Keyboards as an “outlet for personal emancipated expression, as far-removed as possible from the normal anxieties of influence and the capitalist duress under which all artists produce material in the 21st century.” In turn, the series has been a reliable source of high concept fare, from ambient sets to Blink 182-nodding neo-classical suites to last year’s symphony for a MIDI orchestra.

The latest version, subtitled Blackout, is no different: d’Eon writes that it “fantasizes about the sounds of instruments in the physical world… music for when electronic sounds will only be imagined and not heard.” Practically, that means digital compositions in the style of English and Irish folk songs.
