Ti-Cal – Coriolis
CD, Council of Nine, 2002


Coriolis is the third cd on the small UK-based ambient-label COFN, and it’s another gem to look out for. Tarl Broad-Ashman, aka Ti-Cal, formerly one half of the duo Innerise, says to be musically influenced by Pete Namlook & Global Communication. He aptly describes his creations as “favorite morning and late-night listening” which I can 100% agree with.

I’ve heard that “Coriolis” seemed to be a project that was on the artist’s shelves for quite a while. One should be grateful that it is now professionally released by COFN, so that it finally can get proper attention and recognition as its content is too beautiful to neglect.

The cd contains five “Phases”, the press-sheet speaks of “a five-form exploration of synthetic texture”, offering 45 minutes of soft-waving soundtextures and synth-washes, but always carrying a strong, distinct solo-sound.

This warm, peaceful ocean embraces you in no-time with its beauty, it made me think a little of kindred ambient creations by Diatonis, James Johnson or even Darshan on his first albums.
Tarl really knows how to let you hear some of the best of analogue and digital electronic instruments. In “Phase 4”, some cyclic elements are nice melt into the sound-landscape, together with a few short repetitive female phrases.

“Coriolis” is a beautiful treasure out there waiting to be discovered, offering a great of feel timelessness for every listener who takes to step into its magical, encompassing world of sound.
