Reflector #5: Bishop Saynomore – “Sintra Sonata”

Winter holidays Michael B. Tanner — from Washington, D.C. — spent in Lisbon, his wife’s hometown, inspired the theme for his 2009 debut album Ode To Lisbon.

“Reflector” is a series Atlas correspondent David Soares has undertaken to bring to your attention songs by non-Portuguese bands inspired — in many cases, rather mysteriously — by the westernmost European nation.

Bishop Saynomore a.k.a Michael B. Tanner from Washington, D.C. offers a specific brand of electronic ambiance music with synthesized classical elements in the mix. Winter holidays spent in Lisbon, his wife’s hometown, inspired the theme for his 2009 debut album Ode To Lisbon (that’s what I call love). It aimed at reproducing his own feel of the place and includes tracks like “Sunrise In Lisbon”, “Deus Está Nas Palavras” (God Is In The Words), “Green Wine, “ The Glory Of Cristo-Rei”, “Sunset In Cascais”, some cold and rain stirred in and this “Sintra Sonata.”
