Sola Fide 03:04


“The first track, Darkness Falls Upon The Face Of The Deep, picks up where the last record [A Priori ] left off. Van Wissem is still tracing and retracing his steps in each track, and even recycling material from tune to tune; his music remains quite self-contained. But the judicious use of overdubbing to overlay multiple patterns and ornament the melodies creates a more rich and inviting sound. Bright harmonics ring out above the gamboling plucking on The Stars Fall From The Sky And The Heavens Are Rolled Up Like A Scroll like a planet blinking bright against a backdrop of stars, and doubled bass notes exert a magnetic force that pulls you close in.”
“Once there, you’ll hear how simple the beseeching air really is and how well Van Wissem has absorbed the core lesson of minimalism. If you’re going to work with reduced means, your core material has to be strong. Van Wissem is working with iron.”

Van Wissem is ‘both an avant-garde composer and a baroque lutenist, and thus no stranger to dichotomy,’ (New York Times). He has been ‘pushing the lute’s agenda out of the academy and into more accessible circles’ (Pitchfork).
