Geomorphology Bots (single)
2022 / Motorised Cupcakes
Review by Kathy Parsons
"Geomorphology Bots" is a fascinating ambient single by Niclas Tamas, a Scandinavian-born pianist/composer now living in Budapest, Hungary. Dark, minimal and very haunting, this is the eighth piece in an ambient series called The Lullabies for explorers of the permanent extension of life beyond Earth. The pieces are electronic and are created solely with Spitfire Audio's free LABS-series. On his website, Tamas describes the series as:
"Translunar humans traveling on vessels in deep space. The human mind is so advanced that it has lost its ability to fall into a reverie. Instead, mysterious yet beautiful never-ending lullabies plays. No one knows where they came from or who composed them. But they are there, a constant reminder of the unknown."
A pianist since early childhood, severe panic/stage fright derailed Niclas' dream of becoming a professional pianist. Also passionate about computers and programming, classical music, reading, and the art of fencing, he spent ten years at university studying the Humanities. Long story short, in 2017, Niclas sold all of his early possessions and with two suitcases, a backpack, and a laptop, he moved to Hungary.
"Geomorphology Bots" is available from Amazon, Apple/iTunes, and streaming sites such as Spotify, Soundcloud and Bandcamp. I look forward to hearing the rest of the series!
