We’ve all experienced the immersive power of film soundtracks; listened intently as symphonies capture the awe of an epic scene or seen a character’s storm of emotions reflected in a haunting rush of melody. This, alongside composing to visuals, was an early interest for Tom Ashbrook, a classically trained pianist, producer and composer. Over the course of his career the Yorkshire-born musician went on to draw from these emotive influences – plus picked up a passion for experimenting with synthesisers and creating soundscapes along the way – and established his signature sound: a mesmerising fusion of electronic and classical piano compositions.
For one night only, you can witness the musical mind of Tom Ashbrook live at an atmospheric Candlelight Original Session, taking place on October 27 in the stunning St George’s Hall.
The magical evening will see Ashbrook perform original compositions such as Collide and All Clear, illuminated only by the dusky glow of candlelight and enhanced by the amazing acoustics of the centuries-old venue.
Opened in 1854, St George’s Hall is a Neoclassical Grade I listed building which contains concert halls and law courts and has played host to the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. The grand historic architecture of the hall still remains, making for a fascinating backdrop to Tom Ashbrook’s intimate 60-minute set.
