Boomkat Product Review:
Trees Hold Time, first released in 1999, was the debut full-length by Andria Degens, whose unique take on folk music incorporates Eastern and downright otherworldy elements into a singular vision. The most obvious comparison would by with Fursaxa, and certainly Degens' work has much common ground with Tara Burke's: both artists fashion their music from more unusual, alternative instrumentation to the folk norm (Degens plumps for dulcimers, bouzoukis and prayer bowls as well as her own voice), but while Burke's preoccupation is with archaic, medieval song forms, the key to Pantaleimon's sound lies in a more disciplined avant-garde minimalism - take for instance the trance-inducing repetition of 'Thomas' House In Quiet Contemplation' or the slow gestures of 'Bowing and Parting'. Lovely.
