Known for his collaborations with Mathias Grassow and The Circular Ruins, Dato is Tomas first release under his own name. With this album he proves to be one of the leading names when it comes to top notch produced cinematic soundscapes.
Finely crafted from beginning to end with a fascinating blend of traditional and contemporary sounds. As Tomas says:
“Dato means to me to live musically in the now. The past can be a trigger or an inspiration but should never be reproduced or repeated just to be on the safe side. As much as we live in the present, I believe that as artists we should use all the great technical tools we have today at our disposal. Therefore in Dato I integrate all my current ideas in music, sounds, structure as well as my experiences and influences. The key to Dato is to combine not separate”
