Really beautiful, charmingly delicate collection of modern classic / ambient pieces from somewhat under-rated musician Andrew Chalk, with Vikki Jackman and Jean-Noel Rebilly on Chalk's reliable Faraway Press imprint.  Some of these pieces are so crafted together with such fragility it encourages and demands deeper listening, with soft piano keys melting into sparse, plumb bass strings.  Definitely one to lower the pulse in hectic times.  Other pieces piece swathes of electronic chords over analogue instrumentation to create more drone-like textures, although it never really gets dark or over-baring.  Chalk's Japanese inspiration never stays too far, with slight nods in the odd koto note, although it doesn't smoother it either.  A really well balanced LP - with beautiful artwork & Obi too.  (Vinyl / Sleeve VG++).
