Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek) Duval was a new name to me (I wasn't aware he did stuff with Kendrick and Solange when I heard his music). But boy what a great discovery! Amazing instrumental music with loads of tape-delay experiments.

Wrenasmir This album sounds as though it were orchestrated for bowed sunbeam. Light lifts every melody into a space of peace and abundant delight. Beautifully realised. Favorite track: Mutate.

joff curtoys Duval Timothy, but with electronics. Yes please! Love every moment of this. My only criticism, it's too short! More of the same, please. Exceptional. No. 2 in my album's of the year. Favorite track: Mutate.

mobidextrouslikes Absolutely revitalizing, at times uplifting at times melancholic. Talented songwriter who gets it just right. Favorite track: Up.

Recorded 2019 - 2022

Primarily recorded at my home studio in South London, Carrying Colour studio in Freetown, my old studio in Rotherhithe Old Police Station, and Casa Mahler in Spoleto.

Recorded on different pianos, including an upright in Freetown that had lost the felt of its hammers due to the humidity creating a harpsichord-like sound as the raw wood struck the

Other prominent instruments featured are Moog Grandmother, double bass, electric guitar and Juno-G.

Part of the piano recordings on 'Up' and 'Drift' were composed and recorded through April 2021, whilst I was an artist in residence at the Mahler & LeWitt Studios, Spoleto, for the 'Mahler, The Song of the Earth' project in partnership with Mahler Foundation. During the residency, I was studying and creating work in response to the life and work of Gustav Mahler, in particular 'Das Lied Von Der Erde' (The Song of the Earth) — a vast song cycle engaging with nature, forgiveness, friendship, and mortality themes.

While making this record, I wanted to explore what the natural environment means personally. I went on many trips into nature to engage with plant life and natural materials. These included everyday strolls around South London, walks with my mum in the hills surrounding Bath (Up), hikes through Freetown, the hills of Spoleto, up line in Ghana and nature sanctuaries in Sierra Leone (Wood). I found incredible examples of nature in all of these contexts, which I felt personally close to.

I made field recordings with my phone or Zoom recorder, documenting various birds, insects, monkeys, bats, plants, trees, stones and so on, which are all on the record.
