#TBT: Kiasmos – Thrown (Original Mix) [Erased Tapes]
Kiasmos‘ emotive piece “Thrown,” originally released in 2012, was uniquely recorded with a variety of synthesizers, drum machines, tapes delays, and acoustic instruments including a string quartet and grand piano. Even the click of a sampled lighter can be heard in the percussion. Their signature gorgeously minimal style prevails, with cheerily resonating bell-like finger piano notes over an almost subtly trance-like arpeggio backed by ethereal, vaguely melancholic string pads. It’s an atmosphere of warm, flowing beauty, one that surrounds you with blissful and contented feeling.
