When it comes to the world of music, it has its own pace and a vibe. You don’t have to have lyrics to understand the music and feel the same. If you have a strong melody and attractive vibe of music, as the audience you all will automatically love the same within a second. 

Brian Kirchner is a composer, pianist, playwright and teacher from Brooklyn, New York. A graduate of Muhlenberg College and the Community Conservatory of Music, Brian composed several works for film, theater, art, and dance installations throughout the city. It’s a pleasure to hear something brand new from Brian Kirchner. Tea Room, Pacific Hotel” is a quite interesting track along with a catchy video.

Beginning with the simple, organic strum and gentle rhythm of a piano, the track emerges in a way that feels all at once calm and manic, floating around your personal stillness yet carrying you along at high speeds. The connection between the sound and the concept is incredibly powerful – the journey, the beauty of those riffs and melodies – it all seems right at home alongside the instrumental rhythm and ambiance driving the track’s pace. It’s a clever composition that feeds off of the title and the creative imagination of the producer in a hugely effective way, making for an enjoyable, uplifting few minutes of listening.

The musical side of things is notably more unusual, the instrumentation has a certain organic nature to it, a somewhat manic piano part, a bare yet bold and captivating beat, and along with the video on top of all of this – coming through in a fairly simplistic, stop and start manner – all of which adds to the unpredictability, and helps the sound really stand tall as something new and unique.

The music builds throughout, fully kicking into action at just before the more than three minute mark, surrounding you in hypnotic rhythm and warmth. The hook is incredibly memorable, a simple yet unquestionable ear worm. What works particularly well about it is that the performance of these piano tunes ties in beautifully with the rhythm of the supporting music. The concept of up and down, around and around, is exactly what the hook and the instrumentation portray as the soundscape progresses. It’s a minimalist approach but the strength of this uniting of elements is what drives the song, and as stated, it makes for one that lingers in your mind long after listening.

There’s a definite sense of character to the sound and Brian Kirchner nicely delivers the track to the audience with a great vibe.
