Discovery: Kawakawa

The Walled Garden is the latest release from Kawakawa, the musical project of New Zealand born British musician and composer Sam Taylor.

By Jane Howkins

The main instrumentation for The Walled Garden comes from Sam’s beautiful piano playing, with several different melodies being performed at once. The flowing piano melodies really do sound beautiful and I liked the rippling feel that the track provides. About halfway through the piece, things change suddenly, with the piano slowing down and a more atmospheric sound emerging. It’s quite a unique feel for a neo-classical track – have a listen to The Walled Garden below and see if you agree!
