Poem on Aching Arches: ‘Tide’ by Eliot Cardinaux
For his debut as a leader Flin van Hemmen presents a hauntingly beautiful album of compositions and improvisations that draw inspiration from a wide array of sources ranging from Romanticism to Minimalism. The use of poetry, post-production and field recordings add vivid visual and spacial dimensions, all contributing to the cinematic quality of the album.
