Reviewed 2012-06-06 
Play this now. Absolutely gorgeous modern classical music composed and performed by a classically trained violinist. Troy Shafer layers melodies and complex string drones supplemented occasionally by trumpet, synth, organ and vox. More gorgeous stuff in the vein of Sean McCann, Illuha, Hauschka, Hildur Guðnadóttir


*1. (6:09) The Desire Toward Joy - Cycle I Melancholic modern classical turns into dramatic drone
*2. (4:39) The Desire Toward Joy - Cycle II Sweet reminiscence. A return to 1.
**3. (4:03) The Desire Toward Joy - Arpeggios Involved, layered arpeggiated epic drone
4. (0:46)The Spring of Instinct - Cycle I Scratchy, experimental
5. (0:25) The Spring of Instinct - Cycle II Fast flourish, ends short
*6. (16:41) Let The Corpse Of The Mind Lie Unburied On The Edge Of The Great Sea! Lonesome plains, a return to tragic news, eventually turns into a drone
7. (8:19) Faint Fresh Fire: Lonely bladerunner synth and vox intro, bells, strings mimicking, roosters, baby's cries. Creepy, cool
