Discovery: Aiden Appleton

Now it’s time for something different, with British composer Aiden Appleton and his new release, Jotunheim (feat. Tahleuh).

By Jane Howkins

Aiden has created a gorgeous piece of classical music on Jotunheim (feat. Tahleuh). However, it’s a little different from the usual classical norms, as it sounds like something straight out of an epic film soundtrack. It’s extremely cinematic as a whole, fully immersing you within the music as it progresses. The drums have a tribal quality, echoing well with the Eastern sounding instrumentation. It all breaks down slightly towards the end, although it’s no less impressive – this is definitely a must listen!
