Forgiveness is his sixth full-length album and first for Sound In Silence. The album’s eight tracks were recorded at home, combining over-lapping layers of acoustic guitars and electronics. Borrowing textures and sounds from cinematic post-ambient and drone composition and adding some emotional motifs of soothing post-rock and fragile shoegaze, he creates a wonderful sound collage, full of heartwarming soundscapes and restful harmonies. Forgiveness is a profoundly touching album that will appeal to anyone moved by the music of artists such as Eluvium, Fennesz, Stars Of The Lid, Wil Bolton and Yellow6.
