    Ultimately, Re:member succeeds through the brilliance of its composer’s craftsmanship. The technological advances incorporated are, if not incidental, then very much secondary to an outstandingly humane creativity so consistently in evidence here.

    Taken in randomly selected pieces, re:member can seem inconsistent, with an equal chance of picking a sedate track as an upbeat one. The whole contour of it, though, makes a sort of sense, each minute flowing into the next with a mellow logic. Even setting aside the search for cohesion, there's no question that even at its most generic, re:member takes its listeners to a little slice of aural paradise.

    A winning combination of intricate, impeccable craftmanship and human warmth, Re:member is a record that further enhances Arnalds’ reputation as a truly modern composer, capable of scaling heights few of his contemporaries can match.

    Clicks and clacks of the robotic processes add an extra textural layer for music that’s part Conlon Nancarrow’s 20th Century player piano compositions, part Aphex Twin Satie-and-skitter. A gentle mix of the stiff, sad and soothing.
