Immaculate ambient electro-acoustics packaged in handmade sleeves. These are really special.
“Time Apart in the West'' is Rostami and Blomquist's second record created while the duo were recording material in separate cities and their 6th release together.
This allowed for a completely different creative process, which focused more on compositions done separately rather than improvisations done live in the same room.
The songs on “Time Apart in the West'' are shorter than the duo’s usual 10+ minute songs - some running just under 2 minutes.
+ Each case is handmade and totally unique.
The recording process began in the summer of 2020, while sheltering in place due to the Coronavirus with Rostami sending Blomquist organ improvisations he had done. These recordings were processed, sent back and then combined with additional recordings including synthesisers, acoustic instruments, field recordings, and an array of snippets pulled from the hours upon hours of recorded improvisations done between Rostami and Blomquist.
What resulted was an album that stands on its own in the catalogue of this duo’s work, with moments that feel like you’re sinking in the ocean and moments that feel like sitting on a porch at dawn in the summer heat
