Markus Wormstorm is a South African writer, sculptor, an app and video game designer, a composer, a cat lover, a founding member of a fantasy collective for animated short films, a producer and an electronic musician. He is also that sort of classically-educated pianist that can barely stay still. Not I, But a Friend contains 50 minutes of a musical odyssey characterized by tremendous depth and an emotional deepness rarely seen before. Filled with spooky vocals, plaintive strings, tickling basses and a Yann Tiersen-based ivories romanticism, Wormstorm's ambient electronica reenacts a world of mystical subtleties, spectral textures and acoustic details. Instead of becoming a dance album or a typical sound landscape, his music verges on an atmospheric soundscape with a rather gloomy, cinematic touch. Not I, But a Friend offers us a contrasting ride of musical textures enriched with vibraphones, clarinets, marimbas, cellos and even tweeting birds. This brings Wormstorm to a musical cornerstone that may even well be appealing to jazz, hip-hop or techno trendsetters. Modern, classic and minimalistic, Not I, But a Friend promises to be the soundtrack of the subconscious.
