Moorage, Captain, Port & Chambers is the second recording from Nathan Shubert’s Pirate Ship, a project from Vancouver keyboardist/composer Nathan Shubert. Inspired by Phillip Glass, Steve Reich, Erik Satie, and Ryuichi Sakamoto & Alva Noto, Moorage, Captain, Port & Chambers aims to do more with less, shifting the focus from intricate and impressive compositions to the emotional impact that only simplicity can elicit. Shubert invites the listener to join him in the emotional, meditative place that begets this music. The pieces on Moorage, Captain, Port & Chambers were recorded on a mod- est upright piano with mics placed to deliberately capture mechanical noises. The contrast between organic and mechanical is found not just between the piano and the electronics but within the various sonic aspects of the piano itself. Sonic worlds are blended, calling into question the notion of musical and non-musical sounds.
