Very excited and glad to here this isn’t the end, huge fan of Baroque and this sounds in line with a lot of their recent stuff, particularly Planetary Secret.

So, so excited about this. Kei can do no wrong. Silk Tree is one of my favourite albums of all time, so openhearted and nakedly emotional. That performance of Ring Clef above almost brought tears to my eyes – and I am one of the coldest, least sentimental people you could ever meet. New tracks sound great; I too hope that there will also be vocal songs. Roll on a release date!

It should be available now on most streaming platforms (at least it’s up on YT and Deezer etc). :slight_smile:

So, it’s a completely instrumental album? While that’s exciting, I really love his voice too.

Man this is some really great stuff. Kannivalism is his only other work I’m familiar with - and I don’t love them, so this really impressed me. I’ll have to check some of his other work.
