"Time Was marks a new stage in the evolution of Zomes. The album marks the first recordings of Zomes as a duo and the first time an album was recorded in a studio and not on a cassette deck. It all began when Asa Osborne was performing at the Perspectives Festival in Sweden, where he met Hanna through a mutual friend in the Skull Defekts. During Osborne's performance, Hanna, a vocalist, ended up improvising along with the music with stunning results. The strength of the collaboration is instantly apparent from the opening notes of the wistful 'Loveful Heights.' Hanna's voice floats freely above Asa's keyboards, his modal organ riff acting as an anchor. While previous Zomes releases have stuck closely to either improvisation or itinerant explorations of melody and rhythm, Time Was unifies these approaches."
