Timorianne is the latest album from Takla Makan.

The 47 minute album features four tracks comprising of two long pieces with many variations and two shorter ones. The final track, one of the shorter ones, is as close to a conventional song as Takla Makan are probably going to ever do.

Timorianne follows on from where Kirkcarrion left off. It's mostly an instrumental album but I make no apologies for using vocals, both recorded and samples, in my work. The human voice is a remarkable instrument and I like to use it often.

The album was recorded over a period from May 2011 to April 2012. As usual there is a mixture of real and virtual analogue synthesisers as well as a 'small' collection of VST devices used within the framework of Ableton Live 8.

Timorianne can be pronounced as you wish. When I made up the word, and make it up I did, I heard it in my head as 'tim-mor-ree-ann'.

The cover artwork shows the River Orwell at the end of a lovely day in August 2011.
