Timoka’s »Tulgey« is his second effort on the Holger label and quite an achievement: While his debut »Waters« (Holger 2, 2013) offered just a glimpse at the Timoka universe, »Tulgey« expands the themes set there and further broadens the perspective – adding at least one more dimension and offering new insights into this masterly crafted, highly complex world of its own. It’s a zone of transformations: Landscapes become waveforms, images turn into sound – and vice versa. The result is rich on atmosphere, full of bittersweet emotions and captivating from start to finish. If the »Waters EP« could be seen as a fragmented short story, »Tulgey« now offers a much more consistent narrative – it’s a journey, a proper novella. One could call it sophisticated or even wise – though the core of its origin is a very simple one: To create personally relevant music. It just happens to be incredibly beautiful at the same time.
