(Spooky Action, 2006)

Axolotl’s Telesma is the finest example of noise as beauty of which I am aware. Karl Bauer’s ability to turn a violin into anything but a violin is witchcraft, which is probably why I am so bewitched. There are so many layers, Telesma is simply bubbling over with gorgeousness. For fans of Belong, Fennesz or Tim Hecker, this is your new holy grail. I think it is better than any of them.

Telesma is absolutely beautiful, but I can't say I like it better than Hecker's Harmony, Belong's October Language, or most of Fennesz's work...
