about

Composer and field recordist Tomáš Šenkyřík conceived of Fond during early morning lockdown sessions coinciding with the arrival of his fourth child. Weaving Pavel Rajmic's violin and double bass into piano, guitar, electronics and field recordings, a delicately restrained electroacoustic collection emerged, painting a poignant and moving portrait of new life and fatherhood under exceptional circumstances.

Slowcraft digital series Lifelines is curated by label founder James Murray, presenting vital and consoling works from world class genre-defying artists, each carefully mastered by Ian Hawgood and individually paired with bespoke artwork by printmaker June Murray.

Lifelines. Hold tight.

Selected Press:

"Eine ganz spezielle Klangerfahrung kann man auf dem aktuellen Album von Tomáš Šenkyřík entdecken... für eine halbe Stunde wird man jedenfalls in eine ganz andere Welt transportiert."
André Schönauer, Gezeitenstrom

"Soft and soothing, but also somewhat enigmatic..."
Peter Van Cooten, Ambientblog

"Gently surreal tapestry of classical instrumentation with electronics and field recordings"
Mike Watson, Ambient Music Guide
