GRAMMY-nominated musician and producer Jon Hopkins has dropped off his first release of 2020, “Scene Suspended.” First debuted live at the Sydney Opera House, the ethereal piano composition sees the IDM name return to a more simple sonic structure, only utilizing keys and the violin to create the four-minute track.

“The main tracks on Singularity were built of hundreds of layers and processes, and took nearly two years to build,” Hopkins said in a statement. “Following on from this I’ve been craving a return to simplicity, to acoustic sound, and to the instrument I grew up playing. In order to express similar themes but to use as little as possible to achieve this the only sound sources on ‘Scene Suspended’ are piano and violin.”
