normalhumanperson Pete has such an amazing sense of melody. These songs are perfect for wistful mornings or melancholic evenings. Better than Satie in my opinion. Favorite track: the sweet track.

Grifty This album is the shelter from the storm of everyday's madness, the well-deserved treat you long for after an exhausting working day and it is the best way to start into a new day.This record is all this and much more which you wil find out yourself when listening repeatedly, finding new details every time you listen. I don't select a favourite track because they are all favourites. Highly recommended!

released January 7, 2019

most of the tunes here were originally written for the band three cane whale, and so would not exist without the inspiration of my 3CW fellows, alex vann & paul bradley. These versions are the bare bones of, the monochrome templates for, 3CW's multi-instrumental full-colour renderings

music from this album features in adam laity's "a short film about ice" (winner of 'best short film' at belgrade greenfest 2020 and 'best climate emergency film' at the ahrc research in film awards 2020). 'sluice' was used in the cinema trailer for the 2022 feature film "long way back' (dir. brett harvey). 'gospel pass' was arranged for saxophone and string quartet by sophie stockham, and performed in st george's bristol in september 2022

"will appeal to anyone who loves Satie, Michael Nyman, Cornelius Cardew, any intimate contemplative piano music" (Sarah Walker, BBC Radio 3's Sunday Morning)

"rather lovely and rather soothing" (Stuart Maconie, BBC 6Music's Freak Zone)

"how gorgeous is that!" (BBC Introducing)

"demonstrates significant strengths as a composer...this album of instrumental miniatures is rich with whimsical melodies" (MU magazine)
