Review by Kathy Parsons


Matt Johnson's single release, "Strange Pulling," is "a youthful exploration of the laws of attraction." Originally composed in 1989, the recording features electronic and orchestral instrumentation supported by Matt's acoustic piano. Sometimes relaxed and dreamy and sometimes a bit more buoyant and excited (like new love!), it covers a lot of emotional territory in its 6-minute playing time. The key signature changes five times and the tempo speeds up and slows down, allowing the music to "shift gears" and express different feelings and reactions. Instrumentation is full and layered, and includes strings, percussion, piano, woodwinds, bass, organ, horns and the "harmony ball texture" that is often utilized in Matt's recordings (it sounds like delicate glass wind chimes).

Sheet music is also available for "
Strange Pulling." It is arranged for solo piano (16 pages) and includes a lead sheet (6 pages) with the melody line and chords for additional instrumentation.

Matt Johnson very graciously offers his recordings and sheet music as free downloads from his website. His recordings are also available digitally from Amazon, Apple Music/iTunes and streaming sites such as Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, and Soundcloud. Don't miss it!
