Description

On "APHEXions", the Brussels pianist with French roots Dorian Dumont - key member of the electro jazz band ECHT! - is expressing his love for one of his greatest musical heroes: Aphex Twin

Contrary to what one would expect, there are no electronics involved in this album, but he carefully transcribes a wide selection of Richard D. James' music to grand piano, giving the songs a whole new dimension. 

Rave classics like Polynomial-C and Xtal are being stripped to the core while on tracks like Nannou, Kesson Daslef or Fingerbibb he stays truthful to the minimalistic aesthetics from the original tracks. 

As an accomplished jazz pianist, he improvises on the various themes and injects it with a tinge of blues here and there. 

As a result, this homage record captures both the simple beauty and the unruly complexity of Aphex Twin. But above all, it sounds like refreshing new music that immediately puts Dorian Dumont on the map as a solo pianist!
