It’s rare that a purely instrumental, classical track not from a soundtrack makes its way to our ears, but thankfully we found the music of Montreal’s Justin Wright to fill this void. A composer drawing inspiration from the world around him as much as structural experimentation, Wright builds layered tracks off of short, repeating patterns to create lush and atmospheric music.
After watching a man visiting a tombstone, while a young kid frolicked through the cemetery with a balloon, Wright went home and began writing “Modular Winter”. A flowing track featuring violin, viola, cello and some upright bass, the music embodies the album’s title; it creates a warm atmosphere, like being inside by a fire while it’s snowing outside. There’s a melancholy to the melody, but it never overpowers the track.
