In the glen you pause, the lake a still disc, you watch slick birds silently set out from the opposite bank, hovering with an intent. You pick up a dry stick to stir the reflective surface, and from this another sky and another forest shiver into being. Life enchants.
In the spirit of Ludvico Einaudi and Phillip Glass the duo Variant Sea render meticulous and complex panoramas with an easy hand and elegant lines. The fact that Luke Duffy (piano) and Shell Dooley (guitar) divide their time between the islands of Ireland and Island surely plays into the sonic structures and opens up the emotional skeleton for musical marrow.
This is cinematic music by its very nature, all it needs is an equally emotive and reflective visual to play with, to deliver its variant sea dimensions in infinity.
