Gungor did a showcase at recreateconference.com, playing their new CD “Beautiful Things” as an entire work. The visuals, textures and performance was mind blowing and a breakthrough for a Christian music and modern worship. Strings, banjo, and glockenspiel might have been gimmicky or cliche but Gungor flawlessly executed tasty arrangements. Everything seemed to fit. It was that good folks.
The event brought tears and gasps as the movements of music painted something truly honest and beautiful–how appropriate given the CD title. The stage version of the CD was a great idea and I hope others get to see the full production. I cannot remember the last time I was equally surprised by a musical experience. I trust the recording may bring some of that same surprise to you.
