it’s not something
you’d play at the wizard’s party

if there’s a rule of thumb that could be applied to most instruments, it’s that the smaller they are, the more character they have. instead of going for a posh concert sound, helenko captures a rare tabletop celesta made by jenco in the 1930s.
sampled humanly and processed with unobtanium analogue kit created between the 1940s and 1960s, it’s ready to become a highlight of your sonic palette. that is, unless you feel like a celesta should be played only with a serious face and white gloves.
simply put - if you’re looking for that trentemøller / mogwai / tom waits / björk / radiohead kind of vibe, look no further.

Multiple round robins and mechanical noises add to a hyper-real feel.
