John Cratchley I like the way textures meld but also abrade at times on these tracks..."oblique"? Yes, I feel that...but i'm not sure it's "uncompromising" or "minimal" (there's a lot going on here...diversity...and pieces resolve themselves)...i'm sure the narrative description ("orphaned brother and sister" etc) was essential to Mr. Tomsett but that level of subjectivity need not necessarily be placed upon this terrific music by the listener, I think.
These pieces wouldn't sit so uncomfortably in Simon Heath's Cryo Chamber stable either.

about

Too long have I dwelt
In the valley beneath;

A narrative of loss, journey and resolution; an orphaned brother and sister search for sanctuary on the roads of a broken British landscape.

Too long have I felt
The soft summer wind's breath;

Experimental modern classical at a halfway point between A Winged Victory for the Sullen and The Haxen Cloak; oblique, uncompromising and minimal.

Too long have I lingered
In evergreen bowers,

Analogue mixing and mastering by Rafael Anton Irisarri.

And drank the air laden
With fragrance of flowers.
