Pianist Joep Beving reveals second single from forthcoming new album Henosis
The enigmatic artist has announced a brand new album – the beautiful, meandering Henosis, out 5th April, sweeps with a gentle electronica. Today he shares second single ‘Unus Mundus’ via The Line of Best Fit.
Beving rose to prominence quite by accident, having written and self-released his debut album Solipsism for fun, he was awe-struck when the pieces surpassed 85 million streams on Spotify. Since picked up by classical giants Deutsche Grammophon, he’s come a long way from his day job in Advertising and writing his music in the kitchen at night whilst his family slept. Last year he wrote and performed an art piece at Burning Man Festival the ‘Drone Ballet’, where an autonomous flying swarm of 300 illuminated drones took to the evening sky above the festival, to a crowd of more than 70,000 people.
“This is my journey, and my search for understanding,” says Beving. Fittingly, given the concepts behind it, Henosis is a vast, sprawling double album, twenty-two tracks that gently draw the listener in and lead the way, from the calm, contemplative ‘Into The Dark Blue’ to the otherworldly new track ‘Unus Mundus’.
“I believe that the answers are much more on the inside,” he explains. “So this journey, in a way, is also an internal one. My hope is to give people a space to be in for a couple of minutes or hours where they feel things just seem to be right, like a recognition that they’re understood or that they can just be.”
