Near The Parenthesis is the alias that San Francisco-based electronic musician Tim Arndt utilizes for his warm electronic creations. While playing conventional instruments like piano and guitar in several bands throughout the years, Tim has continually been grounded in electronic and experimental music. After disbanding the Urban Needle project featuring Steve Mehlman (Pere Ubu) and Mark Gamiere (The Wake), he decided to go it alone and focus on full instrumental compositions. Near The Parenthesis’ music is gentle and restrained, yet deeply layered with a heavy emphasis on evolution and emotion. In 2006, Tim released ‘Go Out And See’ on Canadian imprint Music Made By People, a soulful album which feels both vaporous and heavy hearted without being sappy or academic, winning enthusiastic reviews from the likes of XLR8R, The Wire, and Textura. A follow-up EP titled ‘Be Still’ on Japan’s Duotone records featured five more of Arndt’s emotional ebb and flow compositions in limited release. Near The Parenthesis joined N5MD in November 2007 to release ‘Of Soft Construction’, a logical progression from his debut as well as a stylistic watermark for N5MD as a whole. On ‘Music For The Forest Concourse’, Arndt again uses the concept of place as the muse for an album, an approach he first adopted on 2008's ‘L'Eixample’, where Barcelona served as the inspiration. Time, however, is the inspiration for the current release and as a result ‘Music For The Forest Concourse’ is more imaginary. Arndt wrote this collection of music “for dusk, for open air, for sitting down, and for breathing in. It is music for staring upwards and listening attentively or casually”.
