Happy Piano Day! Joining forces to celebrate the 7th annual event, Thomas Ragsdale and All Partial release a double A-side to raise money for women’s charity Rosa.
A relatively new annual holiday launched in 2015 by German composer/producer Nils Frahm, Piano Day is a celebration of both the classic and contemporary on the 88th day of the year - a reference to the 88 keys of the instrument.
A collaborative effort between Thomas Ragsdale of electronic duo worriedaboutsatan, and All Partial of post-rock outfit Pijn, the two indulge in ambient minimalism on their double A-side release. Ragsdale’s Mono And Six is a haunting piece of reverb-laden echoes, somber and nostalgic in tone, while All Partial’s slow-paced The Saddest Lad flits between rising synths and the faintly whispered voice of poet Melissa Hair.
Donating all proceeds to grant-making charity Rosa, the money raised will go towards funding grassroots women’s organisations working to make the UK a fairer, safer place for women and girls.
