Comment: today is Sunday and this 11-track outing is actually a proper way to finish off the day in an ennobling mood. Fred Baty who is artistically known as Crepusculum creates blissful sequences with his guitar by handling the guitar in different ways – from vamping up dreamy and soothing soundscapes to more immersive and slightly sophisticated. The course seems to be seamlessly flowing. Additionally to the guitar you can hear an accordion (or melodica) and brass-induced progressions in one track (Early Days) and glockenspiel flickers, and even light layers of a synth. The issue is quite weird in that sense that the tracks can be considered improvised ones yet all the possible tumultuous facets and heightened moods and frantic turns are hidden below a mellow moody shell. Of course, I would like to listen to such sort of frenetic turns but in the recent case I do not miss them at all by not founding them from there. The set is instrumental except a track called Abaculus Perspective where Julia Kotowski, and Genevieve Schwartz provide their voices in creating a heavenly choir to the ascending guitar chords. The issue is a part of the discography of 12rec., legendary German imprint to have been existed from 2001 to 2011. Beatific moments by any means.
