Praise for Tiago Sousa : “this music is very filmic—dark, reflective, reminiscent of Erik Satie at times, but somehow more free and intuitive. Sousa’s piano melodies weave in and out of the piece like inner thoughts flowing in a natural setting, and he mimics this beloved state remarkably well—some ideas fleeting, some latched onto and developed for however long, then discarded.” - Foxy Digitalis “Tiago Sousa cements his place as one of the most distinct voices to emerge out of the current wellspring of piano driven minimalism.” - The Silent Ballet *Tracklisting: 1. Samsara I 2. Samsara II 3. Samsara III 4. Samsara IV
