EP by Thys and Amon Tobin
Release date: November 20th 2020 on VISION.
My new record ‘Ithaca’ with my pal Amon Tobin. Ithaca is a 20 year voyage in 20 minutes of music, it’s an exploration of melody, synthesised sound, and vocal and orchestral textures.
The EP was written in multiple sessions in San Francisco and L.A. over a time span of eight years. It is quite dark in tone, but I think it also shows clearly that we had a lot of fun writing this material, obsessing over sounds, melodies and mixing synthetic, organic, orchestral and vocal textures (mostly our own vocals!)
We’re offering vinyl, artwork poster and digital lossless audio besides the usual streaming options, on Bandcamp and on the Vision Recordings webstore. The amazing artwork is by KHOMATECH with art direction from Nik Roos. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen, and I hope you all enjoy the record!
