This chap has done the business on a few other labels like Line, Trente Oiseaux and Koyuki. So as you'd expect it veers on the more experimental tip. This is pretty minimal piano gear with some micro electronics along with some clarinet and cello chucked in for good measure! Well chucked is a tad unfair in this instance as Tomas is clearly a talented composer! It was recorded over a 2 month period at Headlands Center for the Arts just outside San Francisco. You get loads of minimal piano tinkles, weird crackles and squeaks here and there occasionally punctuated by some well placed misery filled strings and you know how much I like my misery strings! As ever it's a headphones album... I always think you need a decent set of cans and you need to be in your own special place when you're listening to inventive soundscapes like this.
