Description

Book II on CD

Book II is the artist's second album in less than a year. It is born from the mind of a classically trained musician who has reinvented baroque music using an electronic palate. Unlike the classical arrangements by Tomita or Wendy Carlos of generations earlier, the music of Bonus is original. If certain elements are reminiscent of a Bach organ work, a Handel aria, a Keith Jarrett jam, or a movie soundtrack, it is a testament to Bonus's knowledge of historical styles, and his skill in the arcane art of classical improvisation; He is a professional performer specializing in harpsichord, organ, and conducting. Bonus 'invents' through a combination of rigorous instrumental technique and spontaneous intuition; his improvisatory creative process is similar to that of musicians from centuries past. Each track takes inspiration from historical forms and tropes found in music from Monteverdi to Handel. For the modern listener, knowledge of these techniques is unnecessary, and the music speaks for itself as contemplative, intelligent, and entertaining electronica.
