Album Notes
"Glass Green" Reviews:

"It's hard to find words to describe this album because much of what is communicated is in the sonorities of the synthesizers, which are crisp and clear, rich and subtle, very musical and intelligent - a far cry from the tinsel and plastic kinds of sounds that are, unfortunately, so common in electronically generated music. Keyboardist Tim Story is not just a pianist transplanted onto a synthesizer, but is a true artist in the electronic medium." -- Victory Review, USA

"This album testifies to the composer's development and mastery - music which is utterly accessible, yet timeless and profound." -- Bridgeport Sunday Post, USA

Tim Story Bio:

Grammy™ - nominated composer Tim Story, hailed as "a master of electronic chamber music" (CD Review, USA) has received worldwide acclaim for his haunting compositions which blend orchestral acoustic instruments and elegant electronics. In addition to nine solo albums and dozens of compilation appearances for labels like Windham Hill, Virgin, Universal, and BMG, Story's work has appeared on numerous television and film soundtracks, and was nominated for a Grammy award (for 1988's "Legend of Sleepy Hollow", a children's recording, with Glenn Close), and a NAIRD "New Age Album of the Year" for "Beguiled".

"I like to work with a finite palette of sounds and keep paring things down to a pure, though often ambiguous, expression. Simplicity shouldn’t imply simplemindedness. I think of the deceptively unassuming, ironic pieces of Erik Satie, or the beautiful piano music of Debussy." As Philadelphia's City Paper describes it, "Story’s unsentimental blend of still-life piano and eerie synthetics conjures without explaining. His instrumental music comes at the listener subtly...."

“A goal of mine is to get the listeners to put something of themselves into the music. I want to encourage the listener to find his or her own feelings about a piece. I like to think of good music as a sculpture or a Japanese garden, where you can never experience the whole from any one point. Music that insinuates, you must move through it, live with it for a while, before it yields its secrets." Story also cites a diverse range of musical preferences including Bela Bartok, Arvo Part, Pierre Henry, Miles Davis, Steve Reich and Robert Wyatt.

Story’s nine solo albums and dozens of compilation appearances have amassed sales in the millions. Recent soundtrack work includes the original score for the popular NPR documentary “In Search of Angels” (1994), and “Caravan” (2004) , a feature-length documentary from the production company of Acamedy Award-winning Spanish film director Pedro Almodovar. Notable collaborations include acclaimed CD's with Hans-Joachim Roedelius, including “Lunz," named “Album of the Year” in London’s “What’s On”, and 2008's "Inlandish", awarded 5 stars and chosen as "CD of the Week" in London's Sunday Times, the UK's largest newspaper. His music has consistently landed on critics' annual "best of" lists in publications like Jazziz and the Washington Post, and his three most recent solo releases were called "One of the finest 'trilogies' in contemporary instrumental music" (Wind and Wire, USA). Tim Story was born in Philadelphia and currently lives in northwest Ohio, USA.
