"“It has all the music I like in it” - Blue Tapes response to Benjamin Finger’s initial submission of Amorosa Sensitiva.
That music is cloud-rolled drones and sun-speckled synths; it is low tides of distant cello, ebbing into view; it is tiny hits of percussion clustering protectively around sustained piano patterns; it is techno slowed down and stretched out and reconfigured as free jazz; it is cascades of notes that tilt your head back and lift your legs into the air and scroll around you; it is snatches of human conversation rendered as abstract song textures, which lends a hallucinatory logic to the LP’s narrative.
Over the past six years, Benjamin has conjured as many albums of meditative, atmospheric compositions that draw from multiple sources but retain a very natural and intuitive musicianship - one that prevents the juxtaposed sounds from sounding patchwork or contrary.
Amorosa Sensitiva isn’t just stylistically varied though, it has a wide emotional palette - is as comfortable exhibiting ferocity as bliss. It has all the music we like in it and probably quite a lot of the music you like, too."
