Tomasz Bednarczyk - Illustration For Those Who [Room40 Promo]

Released via Australia's Room40 on November 16th, 2k18 is "Illustrations For Those Who", the first ever full length CD album by Polish producer Tomasz Bednarczyk in nearly ten years. Coming back from his Ambient hiatus although having employed a few other monikers for musical exploratitons since we see Tomasz Bednarczyk return to the source with his opener "Theme I", a crackly, blurred out take on the genre accompanied by mechanical background rhythm signatures whereas a walk through the "Botanical Garden" provides a deep dive into total calm and introspection before the "Jukebox" emits tender, soft pads and slow moving beauty whilst a "Rainy Drive" fuses, well, falling rain with a beauteous soft flow and soothing atmospheres - Ambient in perfection. Furthermore "Sunny Ambient" is exactly this on a warm summers day, with "Theme II" Tomasz Bednarczyk harks back to the crackling aesthetics employed by the albums opener, "Sunday" floats warm and easy like a cosy Sunday afternoon with a loved one and the final tune "Six Sounds" rounds things off with a shoreline-reminiscing swell and droning beauty over the course of nearly seven minutes. Ambient as Ambient can be and defo a sweet comeback to the genre after a decade.
