Super happy to be mentioned in The Wire as part of a Raw Tonk Records round-up! “restrained intensity”

Ma/ti/om review

Nice review of the Ma/ti/om review from Salt Peanuts:

“The tension between the three musicians, as the delicate balance, add a strange dramatic effect that deepens the dark, suggestive atmosphere of this piece. Impressive debut.”.

Ma/ti/om – Ashes

Now available to pre-order from Raw Tonk Records!

Ma/ti/om is the trio of Matilda Rolfsson (percussion), Tim Fairhall (double bass) and myself (bass clarinet & flute). We did some gigs in early 2015, and the trio immediately worked really well, so very pleased to be able to make available this recording of the group!
