Product Description

BBC Review

After last year's The Vessel anda string of subsequent gigs,it seemed that Dan Berridge's Broadway Project was set to become a 'proper' band with 'proper' songs. Although Berridge's ear for sumptuous, widescreen atmospherics still remainedcentral to proceedings,it's a bit of a relief to find that his latest effort has ditched the slightly overwrought vocalisms of The Vessel. In Finite is more of are turn to the darkly beautiful sample driven soundscaping that characterised his debut Compassion.

Berridge has enlisted the help of jazzersRiaan Vosloo (double bass) and pianist Matt Bourne, to add a bit of real time muscle.In Berridge's rich, mysterious soundworld it's hard to tell who's doing what; kotos, horns, flutes,harps, strings, Gregorian chant and distressed electronics slip in and out of focus over slo-mo funk drums in a dreamlike haze. Still, Vosloo's resonant growls and Bourne's delicately ambiguous piano chords shine through when they appear.

While Broadway Project records have never been happy clappy affairs, In Finite seems suffused with a quiet, implacabledread rather than the world-weary melancholy of Compassion or the personal psychodramas of The Vessel.Whatever, Berridge's mastery of the studio remains intact.The sources for his grainyassemblages are maybe less obvious this time round (I only spotted one recognisable sample), but they're put together with casual brilliance.

Whatever his methods, Berridge seems able to breathe life into sampled material in the way that few others can. He's a supreme collagist,teasing newemotionsfrom old, forgotten sounds, imagining a music which could never exist in real time but somehow does.But while countless others out there are doing the same kind of thing, Berridge's music still carries that ability to make you feel something. And that's worth seeking out. --Peter Marsh

3.0 out of 5 stars Music for scary documentaries 5 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
Dan Berridge's third album proper is perhaps his most accomplished but also his least appealing. Whereas his debut 'Compassion' raised the bar for sample-based music with its haunted torch songs crafted from forgotten (and not-so-forgotten) vinyl, follow-up 'The Vessel' took a largely-unsuccessful gamble with a male vocal lead. The return to the instrumental template was signified by last year's vinyl-only nugget 'Autumn Breaks EP', but rarely does 'In Finite' break the mood or the mould set by its predecessors. Berridge specialises in a doom-laden gloom: haunted piano chords, jazz breaks, found splices of guitar and trumpet, ancient choirs, spoken word etc. But the mood is unbending and becomes trying as the means of expression become more limited. The production is certainly cleaner and leaner, but the instrumentation (or is it the ideas?) sparser, more minimalist. Too often you feel that Berridge is overly reliant on post-Shadow breaks and find yourself wishing that they won't crash in and consume every track. It is hard to pick amongst the tracks on offer, but 'Raga' stands out for its angular, rollicking guitar licks, and 'Ancient Voices' takes in a distinctive smatter of mandolin for an Eastern flavour. 'Screwtape's Mistake' also takes an unprecedented swipe at skittering drum 'n' bass rythmns, but the mood is unchanged. Several tracks host guest cameos from established jazz musicians, but all follow the mood as prescribed and none carry over any individualistic characteristics. In all, a lot of it fades to background and sounds incidental, like a soundtrack to a scary documentary about climate change or terrorism.

5.0 out of 5 stars All of what makes music great is in this album 13 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
Though Dan Berridge is not a hardcore veteran producer, he is quickly becoming one of the most accomplished. As much as there was stylistic improvement from Compassion to The Vessel, so is the improvement from The Vessel to In Finite. Even the most inattentive listener could hear this as Dan himself said, "It's my 3rd album, but at the same time my first. I've found a sound that I've been looking for." Relevant to this continuing evolution is the complete lack of vocals on this album, instead placing focus solely on aural construction. Far less noticeable sampling takes place here as James White returns from Vessel with several new guest musicians to give BP's chamber cinematics a more visceral live atmosphere with less of a static approach to the record pop loops which come standard on almost every Broadway Project track produced. "Raga" basks in Capitol K's "City" territory with that trip-hop filtered guitar reminiscent of the distorted guitar like vocal sample from the peak of Blockhead's "Insomniac Olympics" but the advancing aptitude of Berridge's production and white noise/picture show style obvious and distinct to anyone who hears all three projects is present throughout. He just keeps getting better. Album highlight "Blood In The Temple" may be the darkest and hardest BP song yet matching a hard-hitting DJ Shadow growl beat with his own delicate layering of menacing organic sounds. Simply put, In Finite is more intelligent and better mixed/mastered than BP has ever been.

By B. Lasnier VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
'I really want to do a full live set led by piano... something that can stand on its own free from electronics.' Such was Dan Berridge's vision, expressed during an interview given almost two years ago. Following a second album on which he confronted his sweeping cinematic sound to traditional song structures by working with a vocalist, Berridge now investigates more intrinsically organic scopes, bringing the particular aesthetic of live jazz into his heavily emotional atmospheric soundscapes. For his third album, his first for Manchester-based Grand Central Records, Dan Berridge brings on board a string of collaborators and takes his project in yet another direction.
Dan Berridge grew up listening to jazz and classical music, before he developed an interest in more contemporary musical forms such as hip-hop and electronica. Set on a collision course, these diverse influences resulted in the formation of Broadway Project. Signed to London-based Memphis Industries he went on to release a series of haunting EPs between 1999 and 2001, followed by his debut album, Compassion. Two years later, Berridge returned with The Vessel. Until then, Broadway Project had very much been Berridge's brainchild, but The Vessel saw the man sharing the workload with vocalist Richard Palmer and developing a different approach to his music.
In Finite returns to the largely instrumental atmospherics of Compassion, but the focus here is very much on bringing in live instrumentation and developing Berridge's inspired sonic ambience within this new settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Broadway Project - In Finite 10 Mar 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
IN FINITE is a return to form for the Broadway Project, after the good-but-still-disappointing THE VESSEL. This time, Dan Berridge leaves behind the vocals for gorgeous soundscapes. The opening track, "K," confirms this with its combination of zither, beats, and reverberating cymbals. Berridge's unique layering of samples conjures up a psychedelic space, from the squealing jazz sax and Gregorian chants in "I, Partisan" to the tinkling electronics, Asian-inspired strings, and thick drumming on "Ancient Voices." Indeed, an strong Asian influence (especially in regards to stringed instruments) appears throughout: "Debouch" takes an Eastern-style melody and blends in some twittering guitars. The melancholy on this album is at once beautiful and crushing: the simple piano that starts out "Coutance/Magic Mirrors" haunts the track, even as the bassline kicks in. "Message from the East" continues the moody atmosphere with strings punctuating the piano line and a saxophone and flute drifting in and out. The sonic density of the final track, "The 3rd Stream" shows Berridge at the top of his game. A bewitching musical journey.
