Tiny Portraits – Sonic postcards from Australia’s lesser known places.
An all Australian compilation with tracks by Michael Terren, Kate Carr, Broken Chip, Seaworthy and Matt Rosner, Camilla Hannan, Tom Hall, Gail Priest, Anonymeye, Dan Whiting and Shoeb Ahmad.

Featuring some of Australia’s best known experimental and electronic artists, Tiny Portraits presents tracks celebrating small towns like Wesley Vale in Tasmania, alongside aural portraits from Australia’s most populous cities of Sydney and Melbourne.
The brief for each artist was to explore a small and specific location which held meaning for them.
As a sort of pantheist, or at least an artist who finds great stories hiding in the vast visual subtleties of nature – Subtle Trees is a classical music collage as much as it is an homage to classical music. It’s core is created through sounds gathered in the owl hours by sampling ancient instruments whose cores were derived from the trees of nature. These sounds were layered like lichen on an ancient pantheistic sculpture.
With The Rules of Another Small World, M. Ostermeier has arrived at an elegant voice – otherworldly and strangely beautiful, much like the desolate Taiwanese San-Zhr Pod Village gracing the album cover.
While elements of electroacoustic, modern classical, jazz, glitch, drone, ambient, and even lounge weave in and out of the record’s eleven compositions, The Rules of Another Small World is the converse of an eclectic collection of songs.
