    BT - Untitled Tenth Album [Black Hole]



    The album's format seems to be a sequel of sorts to Nuovo Morceau Subrosa from 2012 - there's three long tracks each broken into multiple micro-movements. But according to what he's been saying on FB this is unlike any album he's ever produced. It's been intentionally left untitled (that's up to the listener this time around), but shows as "_" (underscore) in the iTunes store.

    Interview with Mixonline.com about the record from August


    And here's a FB post from yesterday where he responded to someone wishing he'd return to the sound of his first two albums Ima and ESCM, which explains a lot about his motivation as a musician and creator:

    Thought I'd share my response to a thread as a new post.Can not wait to share this new album with you all. Expect the unexpected.
    Big ❤️❤️to you guys.
    (In response to the question, is this like IMA, ESCM and others make it like _____)
    "Well to speak frankly and directly, honestly no,
    I don't share the nostalgia many people have for that time period or wish to return to it. It would be inauthentic for me to embrace such a journey and I'd like to think I've made a life and career rich with authenticity and musical altruism.
    I love that I was blessed enough to participate in that amazing time period Kristian Pattison but my goal was then and will always be to make music that connects, inspires, awes, breaks through technical and emotional boundaries and speaks directly to the hearts and minds of the listener; because they can hear some small modicum of my actual person, my humanity and the sum total of all my life experiences on this ball of dirt spinning in infinite space, between the notes.
    Repetition is for people (imho) capitalizing on a moment that resonated for (fill in the blank) group of people to make money.
    Music never has been or never will be a product for me. To a fault. At many times in my career, had I stayed on a certain track and caned (as the English say) an idea to death, it could have been a tremendous commercials win. Which to me would have been a form of artistic suicide.
    I've chosen to traverse as Frost said the "road less traveled". I'm called to blaze new paths, find new and intermediate emotional states, notes between notes, rhythms between rhythms (no wonder some of my best rhythmic figures function where rhythm ends but pitch has technically yet to begin or 8-15hz area ala BreakTweaker) and other new forms.
    I love so much that albums like Ima and Escm mean so much to so many people. It's a joy and a great blessing to have birthed them.
    I will however for the rest of the breaths I've got, be out foraging to discover new trails.
    Maybe people that ask artists to repeat works of theirs in the distant past should be asking themselves what it was about that time in their life they miss and maybe it's a wonderful calling to some long forgotten thing, place, relationship, ideology or way of seeing the world.
    As for my cross to bear, blazing a new path it will be.
    I'll leave you with the full and beautiful words of Robert Frost. If I was a tattoo guy I'd have this covering me.
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;
    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,
    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.
    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
    -Robert Frost"

    The weird thing is, there's tracks referenced in that interview that don't show up here, and he said it'd consist of two hours of music. The tracklist here though only adds up to 45 minutes. Is there a second half as yet unannounced?

    Love the cover! Personally, haven't explored almost any of BT's discography, but I think I'll give this a listen.

    The best albums to start with I'd say are These Hopeful Machines, This Binary Universe, Movement in Still Life (not the US version tho) and If the Stars are Eternal, in roughly that order.

    You haven't been paying attention

    This was him in 2003:


    Honestly tho I like the haircut as an outgrowth of all the youthful energy he puts in his music. Just how he rolls

    I feel happy
