Neo-classical artist Richard Dobeson is set to release his latest emotive single ‘Seventy-Seven,’ a soulful composition that entices all the senses. The Spanish composer combines his neo-classical fundamentals and fuses them with electronic flourishes and cinematic embellishments to create something special. Composed by Richard Dobeson and mixed and produced by sound engineer Julio Rodriguez Orozco, ’Seventy-Seven’ will be released on the 7th of April 2022.
Richard’s intention is for the listener’s imagination to find the true meaning of ‘Seventy-Seven’, but he hints at a sonic concept of celebration, rebirth and forgiveness, “It’s a song to celebrate Spring, rebirth after Winter and to forgive those who have hurt us,” he explains. The delicate picking of an acoustic guitar opens the track while blossoming synth arpeggiators weave in and out, creating an atmosphere that feels hopeful. The melody of the acoustic guitar has brooding darkness, yet somehow there is lightness in every note that Dobson’s plays. Accentuating the melody is the introduction of an electronic and percussive beat that adds impact without ever overpowering the romance of the piece.
There’s a serenity to the melancholy of this soundscape, as warm synths create ambience, and choral instrumentation ascends and uplifts. There is a sense of nostalgia in the sweetness of the notes and chord progressions, that feel reflective and contemplative as if Richard Dobeson is pausing for a moment to breathe and accept the world as it is.
