Boomkat Product Review:
4th solo album of wistful ambient feels with Phaeleh’s signature, melancholic touch
“Matt Preston aka Phaeleh reprises the sounds of his 2014 album 'Somnus' with a second long playing ambient deviation. Intended as a soundtrack to explore the perception of self-importance, 'Illusion Of The Tale' operates with a reduced sonic palette of effected live synthesiser workouts and experimental recording techniques infused with worldwide field recordings.
The majority of 'Illusion Of The Tale' is based heavily on live synth recordings, recorded live with inherent human mistakes and imperfections kept in to avoid the heavily repetitive process of working 'in the box'. A selection of tracks are recordings using Phaeleh's live show setup, which resamples and manipulates existing material. Some are constructed using more traditional composition - 'In the Emerald' is a live piano recording and live doubling of that part with classical guitar - whereas others are strongly experimental - ‘Origins' is made from his thumb holding the end of a cable running through a pedal board, then looped and pitched down.”
