Glass Permanent, his third full-length album under his real name, consists of six compositions of melancholic and cinematic soundscapes with a total duration of 40 minutes. This is a deeply personal and emotionally restful album with a taste of homemade experimentation, which focuses on the physical and technological manipulation of acoustic instruments such as piano, zither and glockenspiel and sound sources like voice and field recordings. Beautifully arranged, these minimalist compositions easily slip between modern classical and ambient drone, being probably Daniel’s finest work so far.
The mastering of Glass Permanent has been done by George Mastrokostas (aka Absent Without Leave), giving a great depth and warm feel to its sounds.
