Comment: I am honoured to listen to Kara-Lis Coverdale`s music who is a Canadian (Montrèal) musician of Estonian descent, and second, she has collaborated with Tim Hecker on his Virgins (2013) whose albums from the first half of the 00s can be considered one of the best ambient music having ever been created. Triptych (as the title says) is 3-track issue consisting of floating piano chords which create arousing moods and feeling despite its minimal and sparse format in a sense. The emotiveness of the outing is brought forth due to consisting of an incessant flow of chord changes while preserving some enchanting iterativeness in her music. As K-LC has stated once of being influenced by sacred music and beyond that she has been working as an organist in different churches across the domestic country for me this album appears as a shelter within it one can withdraw from our spasmodic and neurotic life. Her music can be compared with such artists as Max Richter, Nils Frahm, Lubomyr Melnyk (another Canadian modern classical artist) and by its light-heartedness and captivating mood it can also be compared with such female troubadours on guitar as Vashti Bunyan, Linda Perhacs yet this is a special item by any means.
