Richard Sears

Brooklyn pianist and composer Richard Sears debuts on Shahzad Ismaily’s figureight records with the hypnotic Appear to Fade, a gentle, melancholic, semi-improvised expression for piano and experimental tape loops, recorded in a single day.

Appear to Fade unveils a realm where the boundaries between jazz and ambient music blur, guided by the skilled hands of Richard Sears on piano and Una Corda. This recording weaves between improvisation and composition, brought to life through the collaborative efforts of Sears and collaborator Ari Chersky, whose production and tape-looping techniques gives Appear to Fade its unique identity.
