Free Mp3 Esperi – “My Tear Dissolved The View”
aaamusic | On 23, Feb 2011
After the winter masterpiece that was Made For Life, velvet voiced multi-instrumentalist Esperi (aka Chris Lee-Marr) has returned with a track that’s set to make your soul ache. The aptly named My Tear Dissolved The View was inspired by the idea that there are some places that hold such beauty they can move you to tears. Written over ten years ago, Chris has created a moving instrumental piece that truly captures his initial inspiration.

The track bears comparison to some of Richard D James‘ (a.k.a Aphex Twin) lo-fi ventures, as Chris has managed to create a soundscape that truly strikes an emotional resonance with the listener. There are no real vocals, as such, just odd phrases where Chris has dropped his voice into the mix to give the tune a more harmonious body. The rest of the track is composed of keyboards, percussion and some found objects, which have been run through a guitar pedal, further showcasing Chris’ talent for DIY recording techniques.
As if the track itself wasn’t effective enough, Esperi has also complemented the release with a stripped down video, shot by his wife Cat Lee-Marr and with added animation provided by Graeme Hawkins and Sean Mcilroy. With shots of Chris walking his two dogs on a deserted beach in Northern Ireland amidst ethereal cartoon plants and totems, it’s impossible not to be affected by the gorgeous music and scenery washing over you, speaking to a place locked deep inside.
With an album due for release in mid-2011, this track provides the perfect introduction to the world seen through Esperi’s eyes.
