Louis’ new track, “Iridescence“ was created as a birthday present for his good friend, Nancy Rumbel. In addition to piano, electronic keyboard, and percussion composed and recorded by Louis, Nancy composed and recorded the quite memorable oboe melody.
In building the track, Louis used a wide array of percussion instruments including a “wine bottle xylophone,” made from bottles he and his wife “collected” during lockdown, as well as his antique Deagan marimba, antique Constantinople K-Zildjian cymbal, and other small instruments from his collection, including a scrap metal bushing he uses as a bell in the piece.
“Iridescence” by Louis Anthony deLise (feat. Nancy Rumbel), is a sparkling and scintillating piece. It’s captivatingly brilliant, just like its name. The song is mesmerizing and tantalizing in its ever-changing melodic colors and hues that fully capture the imagination from start to finish. This is a delightfully engaging piece in every nuance.
