„atermus” is the debut album of Duesseldorf composer, producer and sounddesigner Tom Blankenberg. 13 minimal solo piano tracks in an undefined mixture of classical, jazz, avant-garde, score and song are creating a unique Neo-Film-Noir soundtrack with subtle, melancholic melodies rising over dense and tensioned harmonies, “Like an impressionistic painting” a listener once said. Or „Reminds me of japanese minimalism”. No effects, no loops and no electronics. Piano monologs – intimate, delicate, quiet and deep.
