Kimberly Hou – “Field of Memories”


San Francisco-based classical musician Kimberly Hou impresses with her debut EP Opus One, touting four instrumental piano tracks. Each on is consuming and melodic, touting emotive feeling and impressive playing. From the brisk pace of “Dancing in Time” to the gently illuminating “Field of Memories,” the EP does well in providing tonal variety within a uniform instrumental piano emphasis. The latter track is particularly engaging, full of both active and more retrospective moments.

“I wrote my first EP, Opus One, to offer different perspectives of experiencing various chapters of life,” Hou says. “Reminiscing about moments of beauty, wonder, and loss – yet emerging ever stronger, cherishing life and loved ones even more from the present moment onwards.”

“Field of Memories” and other memorable tracks released in February can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2020’ Spotify playlist.
