about

The counterpart to 'Yet Maple', 'For a Portrait of Evenings' presents a longer and less abstract experience than its corelease, albeit still milling around the genre of ambient/drone.

This album features more traditional instrumentative aspects, such as the use of piano/guitar, alongside the expected synthesizer pad swells and lush DSP-work, to the effect of being more solidly rhythmic and less 'flow' oriented than the tracks of 'Yet Maple'. The tracks of 'For a Portrait of Evenings' feature some variation of thematic content, which somehow still pull through to create a consistent experience.

A notable track is the 16-minute discourse, 'Thermal Aggregate, the Fleeting Eternity, a Solemn Breeze', which reflexively represents the whole of the album, in its own right. I suggest listening to this one, if you have the time to spare.

I hope you enjoy this music as much as I enjoyed making it. I welcome all criticism/feedback wholeheartedly, so if you do have words for me, I'd appreciate if you got in touch :) Otherwise, yeah, enjoy!
