Forever More presents new arrangements of the songs from Forever, And No Time At All, Nat Bartsch‘s big hit of 2018.

 In 2018 Australian pianist and composer Nat Bartsch published Forever, And No Time At All, a suite composed of many piano lullabies written while the musician was pregnant. The album, produced by Luke Howard, was influenced by Bartsch’s studies in the field of music therapy and featured songs characterized by simple melodies and harmonies, repetitive ostinatos and tempos similar to a mother’s heartbeat. An album designed to be listened to by babies and their families.

 .

The album had an extraordinary success (2 million streams from twenty different countries) and so Bartsch decided to re-record it with a jazz ensemble, thus releasing Forever More last July. The record features Robbie Melville (guitar and effects), Tamara Murphy (double bass), Maddison Carter (drums), Xani Kolac (violin and effects) and Anita Quayle (cello and effects).

The songs maintain their aura of simplicity and lightness, and the new arrangements (based on a clever use of different timbres, from violin to electric guitar to electronic soundscapes) give an even more intriguing sound to these little sonorous watercolors.

A particularly successful record, which has many different interpretations (music for children, ambient, improvisation, electronics…) and presents a very original musical world.
