In an over-saturated digital pool of music, where it's easy to get sucked in and under the thick layers of Soundcloud links, we're careless. We've placed perceptions on genres, and some even can't tell the difference between composer and beatmaker anymore. But Prayer has hope for you. With the release of his four-part Lost project, the classically trained pianist is looking to shatter your bad listening habits and challenge perceptions of the classical world's traditional inaccessibility. And he's doing it all through a piano.

"Lost was a project created out of my desire to present classical/electronic music that is unpolished around the edges," he says. "Each track touches on emotional extremes, all of them based on an idea that is then distorted/concealed in a way that brings a rough touch to all the pieces. It is this concealment in music that fascinates me - that you can compose an idea and then contrast the elegance of it with something less smooth. My approach is influenced by 20th century classical/electroacoustic works, where composers would often contrast harsh sounds with more 'pleasant' sounding tones."

Listen to new track 'Fading' below. Lost is released digitally on January 20. Catch him live on January 25.
