James Shain An unexpected colab album that turns out to be a perfect match! Solidly an album I will listen to many times over and easily the best album I've listened to released in this year of 2020.

Album Creation Story:

This project was entirely unexpected – one of those wonderful turns of fortune. When I asked Mathias, two years ago, if he had a track to which he would like me to contribute, his immediate response was to send me the four gorgeous synth tracks which grew into this album.

Finding the right parts to accompany all of these atmospheres was a joy. One of my most inspired moments of the entire project was spontaneously drumming on my trusty Pork Pie drum throne while listening to one of Mathias’ parts, a recording of which ended up on "Epiphany With Horses".

Luminous opens the album with a contemplative church organ vibe and chiming 12-string guitars. The rising Power Zen of Golden Pavilion yields to the earthy, tectonic growl of Epiphany With Horses, then to the desolate, yet exhilarating coldness of Icescape at Sunrise.

It was a terrific honor and a lot of fun working with Mathias, and I hope we might do another album one day.

A thunderclap under the clear blue sky
All beings on earth open their eyes
Everything under heaven bows together
Mount Sumeru leaps up and dances

(Wumen Huikai, 1183-1260)
