DiscoNightFever One of the few classical albums to create and walk a thin line between modern classical and accessible electronic effects. Committing to warmth with the occasional bright mood. Great album. Favorite track: Hammer Frenzy.

Igor Sciavolino ascoltatore A thin and intelligente use of old glorious Tascam multitrack recorder.
The unvolontarious noises become structural parts of compositions and create a very astonishing and poetic effect. Great work!

birchtrees I love the music on Broken Access...it calms me so softly and sweetly. Some ambient music is reptitive and boring whereas this is dynamic while serene.

RidgeRacer4 One of the best albums I've been able to work and concentrate to...it lets you drift off and the pulls you right back. Exceptional piano work. Favorite track: Palliative.

about

Broken Access was recorded at home in Prague utilising piano and Tascam 414. Each work features multiple, interacting layers that create an entirely new sonic environment for piano based music. Disarming intimacy is juxtaposed with processed playback, challenging ideas of authenticity associated with acoustic sound itself.

Made up of five pieces, Broken Access is a beautiful marriage of Theo Alexander's previous music resulting in his most complete and satisfying work to date.

The album cover features the work of contemporary artist David Altmejd

Preoccupied by themes of memory, repetition, and decadence, his music is often ecstatic, splicing melodic patterns together in complex and affecting structures of sound. His approach is driven by a desire to subvert the acoustic qualities of the piano with electronic counterparts. ... more
