Rob Ellis Music For the Home Vol. 2
- Words: Alexis Georgopoulos
- Label: Leaf
If the name of this collection implies otherwise, the second volume of Rob Ellis' Music For The Home could hardly be called calming. Ellis' definition of home may be not so much a place of tranquility but a place where one can sift through these oblique modern classical piano workouts without the interruptions public spaces may offer. Make no mistake, there is nothing easy listening on offer here. The PJ Harvey drummer has conjured a diverse, challenging collection that locates him somewhere in the midst of Oliver Messaien, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and John Cage. Indeed, it's an impressive feat of composition when compared with the Neanderthal miming most pop has become.
