There are two sides to Chris Merrick Hughes. There’s the notable producer, most famously of Adam & The Ants, with whom he also played drums, Tears For Fears and many other celebrated names. And there’s the occasional composer of modern experimental music such as the sublime piano ruminations of his new album “Eirenic Life”.
Six tracks of deep emotional engagement, from brooding to wistful and even a little agitating, Hughes reckons. From a richly expressive 13-minute piece to a 47-second miniature, united by a desire to locate a place of calm and peace.
