Inspired by journeys physical and chemical, Tadoma’s 2010 release, Field Notes presents the listener with a sonic slideshow. Places reveal themselves through a fog of reverb and drones as tracks seamlessly move us from one image to the next. Each piece weaves melodies through sounds the way memory is entwined in our senses. They feel familiar but confounding, leading us to listen deeper and find new places within ourselves.
