Balcony View returns with A Portrait of Nothing.

Powerful echoing rhythms. Wave after wave of marching chords. Patient landscapes with soft gradients. The pleasing lights of dawn and dusk. A smooth surface pulled taught over rolling forms. The warm tones of an afternoon. Slow tempo versus raw expression. Pale, luminous passages balanced by splashes of color. Set against a dark wall of time. The nearness of distance, not background or foreground. Cycling between immediate reality and sleepy abstraction. The journey home is long, but Portrait points the way.

Balcony View: “Balcony View originated as a name that I felt would describe my music, the image of being high up on a balcony overlooking a vast, peaceful, natural scene that changes slowly as the day progresses was one I felt suited the themes I often try to aim for. I created it mainly to see the extent of what I could do sonically with the guitar in standard tuning. The album itself is not necessarily about any particular thing. I mainly aimed to unify a series of calm and peaceful themes and blend together a plethora of different guitar sounds.”
