about

Lost Horizons gathers Rhomb tracks that never made it to an album or have become quite difficult to find. This album includes three previously unreleased recordings, as well as remixed and remastered versions of tracks originally issued on compilations. The work here spans the early cassette releases, and carries on through the Hidden Topographies and Mote sessions, including work that was slated to be part of Rhomb’s follow-up to Mote.

“Nathan and I have played and recorded music together for a very long time. Our first joint ventures date back to our school years and a summer at Cazadero Music Camp. That was followed by occasional sessions through the early 80s as we accumulated some gear of our own. It wasn’t until the mid-90s that we were living in the same area again and able to carry on regular work. This album follows the evolution of our work from Lunatic Transit through to the previously unreleased Torch Mechanic.”

The core of Rhomb’s work has been the effective use of improvisation to develop pieces.

“We have always had a great intuitive rapport when playing together, as well as having complementary musical strengths.”

Lost Horizons is part the 2020 series of Foundry Archival releases, made available exclusively through Bandcamp.
