Gem Trails

There is a cinematic feel to every track on this release. "1993" suggests the dream sequences in Brazil in which Jonathan Pryce's character is a triumphant winged champion in armor, while "Mega Fortress" sounds like what might happen if an old computer tried to emulate the sound of rain falling as crystals using only eight-bit sound over an Ash Ra Tempel-esque synth line. "See Colors" is an evolving shimmer of sonic spectrums that feels as though it were written to adequately convey the wonder of color to a blind person. In creating such vivid sound analogues, Timeshares forces the listener to understand not just the use of sound in a visual way, but also to understand the possibilities of the visual medium through sound.
