Introducing Christopher Morin and his latest instrumental post-rock endeavor, “Stretch Out Your Hand,” the debut single from The Sound of Mountains. Hailing from rural upstate NY and now based in Southern California, Morin is a one-man show, playing guitar, drums, keys, and handling composition duties with a touch of bass and violin performances.
With influences ranging from Mogwai and Sigur Rós to Max Richter and Explosions in the Sky, The Sound of Mountains crafts a musical journey that blends traditional post-rock, modern orchestral, and a hint of shoegaze. The project is an intentional exploration, seeking to create a listening experience that fosters reflection, emotional release, and healing, carefully structuring each song to form peaks and valleys within the upcoming full-length album. “Stretch Out Your Hand” unfolds gently, setting the tone for the album, promising a refreshing dynamic with each subsequent track. Morin’s musical prowess is evident in his thoughtful approach, creating an atmospheric landscape that invokes introspection and solace. Recorded at his home studio in Sherman Oaks, California, the single features a poignant violin performance by Jahna Stanton from Ohio. The meticulous mixing and mastering were handled by Goran Dragaš, resulting in a seamless sonic experience.
As Morin reflects on the creative process, he shares, “Stretch Out Your Hand was essentially written as a prayer; to be a place of solace for the sick and stressed out. I wanted it to be peaceful enough to wind down and relax to, but slowly build to a more subtle peak (compared to other post-rock music) that may trigger the release of pent up stress, worry or disappointments.” While The Sound of Mountains has yet to grace notable stages or festivals, the project’s atmospheric sound has garnered praise from Dreamy Soundscapes, Last Day Deaf, Maisonneuve Music, mp3Hugger, and We All Want Someone to Shout For. With Morin’s heartfelt compositions, The Sound of Mountains promises to carve its niche in the diverse world of instrumental post-rock.
