"A rare and beautiful discovery!" Sonny's debut album which was recorded in London over a six month period, was released in 2004, and is a finely textured work showcasing his plaintive vocals, sculpted around ambient soundscapes, utilizing both organic and electronic instrumentation.
The opening track 'Oneness 1 (Inner Ear Spectrum)', is a swirling array of sounds: layered synth and guitar loops, with a rhythmic beat and Sonny's vocalise that creates an almost trippy atmosphere, that is carried over into companion pieces 'The Presence Of Blue Light' and 'Oneness 2 (The Life Of Scattered Stones)'. Their trance-like nature and ethnic feel are reminiscent of the work of Sheila Chandra, as is 'She Moved Through The Fair', Sonny's rendition of the old Irish ballad.
Songs such as 'Stillness', 'Places For Healing' and 'Live In The World', are virtually hymns to the natural world, capturing intense feelings for landscapes, with his emotive vocals floating over warm electronic sounds.
'Twilight-World Music' is a beautifully hypnotic experience, which also displays an affinity with the dreampop of Cocteau Twins and the lyrical intensity of David Sylvian. It is an album that comes from the depths of the heart. Lose yourself in its charms.
