“atermus” is the debut album of Duesseldorf composer, producer and sound designer Tom Blankenberg.
13 minimal solo piano tracks in an undefined mixture of classical, jazz, avant-garde, score and song are creating a unique Neo-Film-Noir soundtrack with subtle, melancholic melodies rising over dense and tensioned harmonies, “Like an impressionistic painting” a listener once said. Or „…as if Bill Evans were communing with Arvo Pärt.”.
Pure piano – intimate, delicate, quiet and deep. A rest for 21st century minds. „atermus“ is available here at Less Records on vinyl and CD as well as on streaming platforms.
