“From the farthest parts of the world, XPURM brings a unique blend of piano and strings
to Soft Phase. “PRUMX” is a stunning work, a cinematic ambient soundtrack for all your
heartaches and hopes.

The piano is XPURM‘s primary instrument, with melodies and chords showing influences from
modern day composers and past classical masters; from Winston to Brickman to Beethoven.
XPURM’s technical dexterity is extraordinary, but he also has a very soft, warm touch: these
intimate solo concerts resonate at a deep level. A single pool of light around the performer,
floating in a serene sea of velvet-black space.

Piano, synthesized pads, acoustic strings, and luscious reverb — XPURM seamlessly, soothingly
melts them into a wonderful, gloriously uplifting work. Gentle, brassy violin strains swell
into a spritely, almost playful, ivory arpeggio; then simmer into a hushed whisper, as the
piano recedes into the distance, echoes drifting in from far away. A dusky orchestral anthem
closes the record, chasing away the winter rainstorm, leaving the heavens fresh and pure.
The last scattered piano notes twinke like stars. Midnight comes softly in this place.”
Joshua Saddler
