This new collaboration with "Eyes cast down" (Greg Moorcroft) came about spontaneously and grew over a year. Some sounds are already known from various works by Grassow, but Greg has added a very own note to the pieces.....
Greg says :
"I asked Mathias in early 2018 if he had a track to which I might contribute. He sent me these four beautiful synth tracks.
Finding the right parts to complement them was a joy. The most inspired moment was spontaneously drumming on my Pork Pie drum throne (while sitting on it) listening to one of Mathias’ tracks. I ended up recording some of that for Epiphany with horses."
Above all, we hope you will find the music inspiring in many ways."
So, both artists ask you to feel the deep in 90 minutes profound ambient for a special price !
