about

At Disintegration State we've been huge fans of Andrew's various projects for a long time so it's an honour to be releasing his latest solo effort on our label. Rediscovering the boundless possibilities of the piano as a tool for sound design during the strange winter of 2020, Andrew has stretched and warped its tones into 9 delicate and emotive piano "frameworks".

"I don't think I necessarily finished anything here...it feels like there is still more to explore in this workflow, and in these songs. I could just as easily revisit any one of these pieces and change its course entirely with new arrangement, mixing, etc... Similarly, I wanted to give it an overall sense of impermanence. The pianos, the tape machines, and even the cassette that the music is printed on will inevitably degrade, be replaced, or fall apart. It's all prone to decay."

The music itself moves in slow motion - each note is given time and space to breathe and shine. Like a seemingly simple object revealing infinite complexities under a microscope, Andrew discovers symphonies hidden inside each strike of hammer on string. We think it's exquisite and hope you enjoy immersing yourself in this sublime ambience.
