When Italian composer Bruno Bavota and Dutch songwriter Chantal Acda met a few years ago, it was immediately clear that a collaboration was bound to happen. Bavota was already a fan of Acda's dreamy folk and in Bavota's intimate piano compositions Acda saw a potential that was begging to be exploited.
The result is an album that came about from a distance - without ever being in the same room together. The nine songs on A Closer Distance are largely built around Bavota's lonely piano sounds and Acda's layered, ethereal vocals, a combination that evokes intimacy and peace. A particularly intimate listening experience in an atmosphere of security - we dare say: vintage Chantal Acda.
