REVIEW: Inverse Room - Pieces For The Left Hand: 100 Songs
Inverse Room – Pieces For The Left Hand: 100 Songs
2005 Bright Small Songs
Inverse Room is the musical outgrowth of J. Robert Lennon’s imagination. On Pieces For The Left Hand: 100 Songs, Lennon offers 100 musical short stories for your listening pleasure. Every possible genre/sound is covered here, generally in 30 seconds or less.
I can not review this in the traditional sense, as these are more like musical thoughts. It would be like reviewing paragraphs rather than a book. What I can say is that when played on shuffle as the CD itself recommends, it can make an interesting backdrop for a rainy Sunday Afternoon.
This recording isn’t for everyone. It’s more of an aural experiment by the artist than anything else. If you enjoy Inverse Room, or if you like J. Robert Lennon’s writing, then you’ll likely enjoy this for what it is.
