a beautiful set of improvisations, fusing bubbling, atmospheric & ambient electronics with moody & deeply evocative horn arrangements.

spending a couple of years intensively exploring the evi, or electronic valve instrument, a 1980s synthesiser/horn hybrid, walter eventually worked out webs of loops made on the instrument, processed trumpet & fragmented electronics. building on the loops & textures of the evi, the album incorporates phasing patterns, the occasional motoric churn of dubbed out drums & considerate passages of trumpet improvisation, calling on walter's years of experience as an improviser. longer pieces are bridged by truncated interludes, wandering between modes that are by turns spooky, restless & sublime.

jez recommends :"I didn't expect the warped sound of a looped midi jazz trumpet to be quite so engaging, but these orchestrated, ambient fragments are tear-jerkingly wonderful. Evoking a hazy nostalgia for a mis-remembered time, it's a stunning listen."
