“It’s always marvellous to come across an artist who’s making great waves in the industry through sheer talent, creativity and absolute professionalism. Edward Abela is one of those rare gems.”
– EVE interview
Edward Abela is an artist and composer with an agenda, wanting to redefine what the modern world sees as ‘classical.’ As with all genres of music, they develop over time and classical is no different. It has come a long way since the days of typical classical musicians like Beethoven and Mozart; it’s simply not like that anymore, but this is many people’s preconception of the style. Having worked as a composer for Warner-Chappell, Edward has developed a particularly cinematic style of composition whereby each of his pieces are highly imaginative, telling stories through the medium of sound. Abela’s style is championed by his instrument of choice, the piano, but the talented multi-instrumentalist also utilises sweeping sound effects and other delicate instrumentation to create ambient space within his work.
