Elusive Geometry documents a period of transition, self-(re)discovery and moving on. The title refers to the narratives we construct, cling to and ultimately discard. The album is composed from field recordings, sampled instruments, synthesis and algorithmic percussion and demonstrates how electronic music can be both danceable and deeply emotive.

The densely layered almost-chaos of Proto, Would That You Were and Decoherence speak of confusion and uncertainty. A return to equilibrium comes through in the minimal vibes of Metastability, Rhythmed and Pellucid. The album closes with the dreamy, ambient lilt of Post, with it’s final-second epiphany: “it’s so beautiful here”.

A special CD edition of the album features stunning, limited edition art prints created in response to the music by the artist’s brother, photographer John House, whose work has been widely exhibited including at the Royal Academy of the West of England, Bristol.
