about

Penumbras is a reflection on human impermanence spread across two complementary releases of atmospheric electronics and piano-based contemporary classical music.

Taking as inspiration the idea everything we are, and all that we love, is borrowed and will be someday returned, Penumbras' evocative melodies express by turns wonder, hopefulness and gentle melancholy. Analogue electronics are juxtaposed with reverb-drenched piano, set against tightly-focused percussion arrangements and bound up in layers of gauzy ambiance and tape saturation. The result is an emotionally-resonant exploration of our transience between the shadow of non-existence and the light that we are destined to become.

The five tracks of "Penumbras 1" open with the rhythmically-oriented "Nothing" and the dense, enveloping "More Than". From there the release moves to the shimmering piano motifs of "Stills" and to the optimistically up-beat "And". The contemplative "Points of Light" gently concludes.

The second half of the release, "Penumbras 2", is forthcoming in February 2020.
