“Time Canvas was a big step in my development as a (solo-)musician. Up until this recording, my music as Tsukimono had been steeped in vst-effects & plugins, and I was quickly tiring of it. I decided to strip my computer of almost everything except a simple sampling/sequencing program and started working on a few new pieces where I zoomed in on a single instrument/soundsource to see what I could get out of it using only raw, untreated samples (save some pitchshifting).
During this time I was spending up to 2 hours or more each day commuting between home & school and the breathers I got while on the trains proved a perfect time to work on this new music. To shut out all the everyday noise and stress and to focus solely on these samples/pieces made me feel calm and soothed.
Thanks to the people who's ‘playing’ on the album: Emelie Molin, Kristofer Ström and Erik Levander. Thanks for lending your breath and time.” - Johan G Winther
