Former Art of Noise
keyboardist Anne Dudley
, already establishing herself as an accomplished film composer (The Crying Game, The Full Monty, American History X), steps out with her official solo debut album in Ancient and Modern. A fusion of new age-style atmospherics, avant-garde classical minimalism, and the music of church-oriented composers such as Bach or Thomas Tallis
, the album is a strongly spiritual statement, peaceful rather than searching. As such, it stands a strong chance of appealing to both new age and open-minded classical listeners alike.
