Discovery: Hess is More

Hess is More is the brainchild of Danish musician Mikkel Hess. The collective have nine albums under their belt but we’ve just been introduced to them through their new track Imaginary Pianist.

By Graeme Smith

Imaginary Pianist is a solo piano version of the main theme of the film Suicide Tourist which stars Nikolaj Coster Waldau. Game of Thrones fans will know him as Jamie Lannister.

It is slow and sombre, creating a sense of peaceful melancholy. The whole piece is understated but I found myself enraptured. For a few minutes, my mind went blank and I was at ease.
