As Breath – (Barkhausen Recordings, 2023)

“An exciting release that slides from modern composition to post-rock, As Breath starts with a weighty theme, but can’t hide its exuberance.” – A Closer Listen

“‘As Breath’ provides a cinematic experience for audiophile freaks on the hunt for noise meditation, ancestral ambient, organic techno and neoclassical symphony.” – Inverted Audio

Traces of a world that we never knew existed – (Barkhausen Recordings, 2023)

“Traces of a world that we never knew existed” was composed to accompany the art exhibition, “At Leve Som Gud I Naxkov” by Philip Glazer at Sankt Nikolai Kirke, Nakskov, DK (September 2023). The exhibition commemorates the first Jewish settlers in Denmark who arrived some 400 years ago to the small town on the western edge of the island, Lolland.
Produced with support from the Danish Arts Council (Statens Kunstfond)

APERTURE – (Barkhausen Recordings, 2021)

APERTURE is a hall of mirrors. A space of liminal transience with six doors to choose from. Each leads you into a distinctive sonic universe, reflecting the persistent states of expansion and contraction of life.

“Really strong…deep and textured production.” -Dummy Mag

“Absolutely riveting.” -Tome to the Weather Machine

ABSENTIA – (Unit Shifter Records, 2017)

“An immersive and cinematic album that weaves lap steel guitar, tectonic motion, and cascades of noise into a rich sonic tapestry.” – Electronica.org.uk
