Album Notes
Traum-a reveals what Twile identifies as his four obsessions: filtered violin, glitch sounds, dub bass lines, and contemplative melodies. Going beyond standard dubtech, the tracks contain definite and extended harmonic arrangements. The first half of the album builds on the ”four-to-the-floor” beat pattern while the second half relies on a more relaxed, less defined rhythmic structure. There’s a persistent, melancholic ambiance maintained throughout the album. Amongst these four songs one will find introspective, reverberating melodies conveying a sense of space and distance, violin samples bringing an undeniable layer of sadness, traces of glitch adding texture, and subtle beats and bass lines providing a solid rhythmic structure. Especially notable on ”Sedna” are beautiful vocal fragments by Milja (Naava Projekt) exuding a human touch of pathos. The album as a whole is a manifestation of Twile’s belief that what is contained in sadness holds the greatest potential for joy. So Twile, as if assuming the role of a therapist, summons the misplaced world of dreams, childhood, and forest to offer a sonorous cure.


"Equally detached from all worldly hardships is “Traum – a” by Jarmo Huhta aka Twile. Two years have passed since his debut release “Chiaroscuro”, but it’s been quite worth the wait. Huhta’s music also drowns in lush ambient reverb and his pieces follow the same slowmotion path as Das Kraftfuttermischwerk. But throughout, the mood is rather one of eeriness, of surrealism and of an immanent outburst. “Designed to be listened to in seclusion”, he advises, but these four track not only ought to be appreciated in a place of solitude – they must have been composed in one as well. Underneath the threatening surface, a concrete bassdrum beats at a comatosed rate, while the slide effects of Huhta’s violin mix with gargantous piano chords and ghoulish marimbas. Everybody likes a good ghost story and few tell them as effectively as Twile."
