Just before releasing Impermanence, his long-awaited second album, Othon has come up with an unexpected limited edition tape release. As the title suggests, Silky Hands Of A Rough Piano Boy centers on Othon's life-long companion, the piano. On the A-side, Othon returns to his soloist roots performing his new work "Behind The Veil Behold The Liquid Light!," together with two gems by Chopin ("√Čtude Op. 25, No.1") and Mendelssohn ("Venetian Gondola Song No.1" in G minor from "Songs Without Words"). On the B-Side, Othon is releasing for the first time two of his oldest and most adventurous songs to date. "Kali Dances" and "Digital Angel 000" were both recorded live as part of the composer's final recital at Blackheath Halls while still studying at London's Trinity College of Music, back in 2006. "Digital Angel 000," though not included on Othon's debut album Digital Angel, was originally one of the first songs written for the eponymous song cycle. Cover features linocuts by Dale Cornish. 200 copies only.
