    Million fragile pieces of sound collide and mirror otherworldly dimensions. Reality and dreams, body and soul go on a magical trip into the unknown. While the piano, earthly, comforting and dark at times, brings solace like an echo of your thoughts. Awoken from this dream, you feel connected, reborn.

    “ Coalescence is a collaborative album by contemporary jazz pianist Dimitar Bodurov and electronic music producer Ivan Shopov. Spanning over eight variously paced pieces the record is the result of two lengthy improvisation sessions that took place in Bodurov’s Amsterdam-based studio back in 2017. After letting the raw recordings season for a few years the duo re-immersed themselves in the material. The album they fleshed out feels and sounds as if it was meticulously composed and not created in the spur of a moment. Coalescence is offered to us barely edited and as pure as it gets. Bodurov and Shopov are indulging in varyingly paced and piano-driven musical explorations which are minimalist at their core but emotionally dense as well.
