Beau's work as a producer inspires me a great deal, but I'm even more thrilled by his own music. This new collection is especially lovely and challenging, showcasing both his skills as an engineer and as a musician. More please.
Nine processed piano pieces spanning nine years. Recorded using 2, 4, 8, 16 and 24 track tape recorders and cassette.
Processed using analog techniques (overdubbing, sound-on-sound, inversion, retrograde, retrograde inversion, varispeed, saturation, splicing, tape destruction), sampling, and digital techniques (buffer manipulation, sample rate modulation).

“Hell’s best kept secret...”
It’s like all the best trip hop albums could be refracted through a kaleidoscope. And that’s not saying the album has nothing new to offer. It’s compelling from start to finish. Grooves and unsettles in the best way. VetsFetchin'
I was wrong with this album as I didn't buy it at my first listening...... it's as all other albums exactly what you can expect by r beny: beautiful ambient music with his unique style and composition.....great work Austin! 🤗 autark
