In the Treeeees A satisfying album of modern classical composition. Good for times of reflection and decision making. Boysen is adept at making chord transitions that you didn't expect. It's hard to believe that he's also the one behind the insanely varied music of Hecq. Favorite track: Golden Times I.

Alexander S. Kunz Spells is clearly a step up from Gravity. The tracks' subtlety benefits from listening with headphones and the album as a whole keeps getting better with every listen. Favorite track: Golden Times I.

Bruce "Bass-pocalypse" Beukes There is a subtlety, lights the mind up like the birth of star, like you've heard it before the dawn of time, like it's been sitting in your gene's all the long... Favorite track: Nocturne 4.

.:BAT:. Ben lukas est a l'égard d'autres artistes comme Olafúr Arnalds , Níls Frahm ... un compositeur qui prone dans ce genre inclassifiable de musique electro acoustique.
Cet album fait parti de ma playlist la plus mature , la plus sensorielle émotionnellement parlant , celle qui accompagne et qui rythme mon existance et m'aide à trouver la lumière.
Favorite track: Nocturne 4.
TONY ZAGORAIOS Following Ben Lukas music a few years now and its pretty sure that he keeps defining his musical style without loosing his identity. This is one of the most mature and wonderful albums i have heard from him.

Edward Haddon Gorgeous, mellow, reflective. It fires off your nerves and makes your emotions bubble and toil. I should have gone to bed hours ago but the music is keeping me awake and making me analyse my existence. Buy it. Favorite track: Selene.

‘Spells’ merges programmed piano pieces with live instruments, combining the controllable technical world and the often unpredictable aspects of live improvisation. In some ways it continues where his underground debut ‘Gravity’ left off, though a lot of weight is lifted, making room for a lighter and more energetic listen. Friend and fellow Erased Tapes artist Nils Frahm mixed and mastered both albums. Ben is not a master pianist like his dear friend, but his sound collages are so meticulously designed that after hearing the result an impressed Nils declared: “from now on, if anyone asks – this is a real piano”.
