In the spotlight for XXIM:EXPO #2 is Dutch pianist/composer, ABBOTT with his new EP, Unfold.
“This music was written during a phase of my life where time just seemed to stand still. The pandemic was a big part of that of course, but the experience went even deeper. I suppose there are moments in life where it feels like we are just treading water without ever getting anywhere. For me, this EP reflects such a moment and on coming to the conclusion that sometimes the key to development is to fully embrace the stillness and let the situation unfold naturally,” explains ABBOTT.
The EP release is accompanied by a new video for the track Familiar. Directed by award-winning Argentinian director Nicolas Bori, it was filmed almost entirely underwater and stars French record free-diver and filmmaker, Julie Gautier.
