Touch系列のカセット専門レーベルThe Tapewormのサブレーベルとして誕生したThe Wormhole。カセットフォーマットには合わない作品をリリースする為に始動した新興レーベル。本作は2012年10月にリリースされた、BJNilsen、(Die Schachtelのソロが素晴らしかった)Andrea Belfiを中心とするアンビエント/即興トリオThe Swifterのデビュー作。アコースティックな要素も多く少しぼやけた音像は恍惚感を誘う。アンビエント系で活動するこのメンバーならではの優しい響き。教会での録音。

Introducing The Swifter - a new trio featuring Andrea Belfi (drums and percussion), BJNilsen (electronics) and Simon James Phillips (piano). Their debut album documents the first encounter of the three musicians. Recorded live in the Grunewald Church, Berlin, careful attention was given to capturing the unique resonant acoustic offered by the airy, stone building, exhibiting the broad palate of aesthetic qualities the group are able to create. Subtly evolving sound worlds that evoke, at times, the loneliness within a ship's hold; a relentlessly driven wall of harmonically rich sound or a sonic fog that lifts to reveal a delicate instrumental discourse. Nilsen sources material from the soundboard of the giant Bösendorfer Imperial concert grand played by Phillips. This setup facilitates a oneness of sound that Nilsen subtly manipulates to either augment or contrast against the unique sonic world of Phillips' playing - which is carefully punctuated or driven by Belfi's distinctive style. The album's cover features double-exposure photography shot by Chris Bigg (David Sylvian - 4AD). Available as a limited edition vinyl LP (and as FLAC download) on The Wormhole, a byproduct of The Tapeworm.
