Following ‘Grains & Motes’ with Ben Lukas Boysen, ‘Beat Infinitum’, and ‘Building Blocks’ EPs; Neil Cowley’s first solo album ‘Hall Of Mirrors’ is a highly personal account of his relationship with his old friend the piano. The album merges sounds and influences from ambient, electronic, improvisational and contemporary classical music on an emotive journey of artistic exploration, reinvention and renewal.
