Ben and Martyn complement each other magnificently on this short but divine piece of music. Favorite track: Crest and Trough.

julian_edge My favourite moment is 1.18 into June, when the rippling curtain of piano chords, shifting in the breeze, opens and the guitar slips through, gentle but not tentative, exploratory but confident, raising its head to take the air and choose direction on this early summer’s morning when not everything is easy but all will be well. Favorite track: June.

Recorded in the respective studios of Ben Lukas Boysen and Martyn Heyne, as well as a reverberant church, THESIS 16 sounds like a mix of both artists and yet unique enough to surprise the avid follower. The music will be released digitally as well as in a limited edition of 10" vinyl records. Each sleeve & jacket is meticulously handmade using a letter-press, home made walnut ink, heavy acid free paper, a laser cutter and real milkweed flowers from the THESIS prairie.

Please spread the word about this wonderful release.

I hope you enjoy the entirety of THESIS 16, from the opening tones of an unplugged church organ through the beautiful play between guitar and synthesizer that fulfills the album.
