sonic tapestries blending field recordings with acoustic and electric instruments, often warped into strange new shapes ★★★★ MOJO
a seductive ambient heat haze of rarefied beauty. PROG
a beautifully and slowly evolving album that takes us on a transcendental journey that feels simultaneously unfamiliar, benign and inviting…. Tortusa’s finest and most distinctive work to date
8/10, FUTURE MUSIC
The album has taken three years to create, and features contributions from some of Norway’s finest musicians, including three of his idols: Arve Henriksen, Eivind Aarset and Erland Dahlen. “Bre” is composed of ambient experimental music heavily inspired by nature, and takes the listener on an emotional journey. Tortusa paints with sounds, and the music inspires inner visualisation of the story he tells through his weaving and blending of abstract sonic material.
