|British electronic musician David Wright makes a rare stateside concert appearance within the remarkable setting of St. Mary's Hamilton Village on 15 September 2012 as part of The Gatherings Concert Series.|
|David Wright is considered one of the UK's leading exponents of melodic instrumental music. Since his debut album in 1989 Wright has released numerous solo works and earned respect as a live performer.|
|His music is characterized as being atmospheric, flirting with the ambient and ethereal, while his melodies connect to jazz and eastern music. Wright's albums seem like journeys propelled by a gentle rhythmic motion. By combining electronic sonorities with emotional gravity, the resulting music is rich with unique ideas, refined ambient tones and elegant melodies.|
|Wright's work spans a broad spectrum of styles but is always thematic with strong melodic structure as it combines romanticism, sequences, atmospherics and varied rhythmic elements. His music has been characterised as emotive and expressive. The gently rhythmic style is also laced with classical, rock, jazz and cultural influences making his albums as diverse as they are original.|
Wright's music has been likened to Kitaro, Vangelis, Mike Oldfield and Yanni. An established live performer, he has appeared with, amongst others, Jonn Serrie and Klaus Schulze. Wright co-founded the electronica group Code Indigo as well as makes up half of the instrumental duo Callisto. His music has featured on Sky, British TV and numerous international CD compilations.
