Travelogue is the first album by 26-year-old Portland composer Derek Hunter Wilson. By turns harrowing, poignant, and restrained, it is remarkably accomplished for a debut. Centered around Derek's masterful piano playing, Travelogue also features accompaniment on violin by resident Beacon Sounder Peter Broderick as well as field recordings, cello, harp, and synthesizers. One of the most interesting musical conversations happening today is in the dynamic area where modern composition and and experimental/ambient music overlap. This collection of songs adds to that conversation alongside recent work by Julia Kent, Max Richter, and Jóhann Jóhannsson while retaining its own sense of style and place. Embedded in the rainy ethos of contemporary Cascadia, listening to Travelogue brings to mind watching the cranes work through a water streaked window.

Derek's song for the inaugural Piano Day (established last year by Nils Frahm) has garnered over 25K plays.
