Tilomo is the brainchild of ace Philadelphia-based producer/guitarist Tim Motzer (Nine Horses, Ursula Rucker). After his more experimental excursions with Burnt Friedman and Jaki Liebzeit (Can), and his powerful groove-orientated work with King Britt and Ursula Rucker, Tilomo is Tim's first venture into Chill-out/Ambient territory and displays his typically uncompromising and inspired touch. 10 soundtracks, each a world in its own. A seductive soundwomb of soft electronics and fresh ideas.
Tim Motzer has made some pretty noisy sh*t...Ursula Rucker and King Britt's Sister Gertrude Morgan CD-not to mention contributions to David Sylvian's Nine Horses and Jaki Liebezeit's Secret Rhythms. Yet, on this new solo excursion, this Philadelphian finds solace in silence. Tilomo, Tim Motzer's guitar/laptop solo project, benefits greatly from the sloe-gin-y liquid soul of his work with Britt-you can hear it in the way his fuzzy jazz-foink chords ooze through the title track. But there's a sputter, beep, whoosh and clink to the proceedings that make it happily irksome and decidedly un-neo-soulful. The sawed, strained string samples of "Blue Samari," the thickly blown wind sounds that trace the development of "Embrace" from autumn chill to winter storm, the cheery tinkling of "Chi Moto"-there are eight million moody stories to be told in this ambient jungle. --A.D. Amorosi (Philadelphia City Paper)
Soft Lunch is space. My favourite tracks are from Zen Assembler to After They've Gone. This is the part that reminds me more of a space for counsciousness. I love even Embrace too. It is very abstract and linked to space. Sky music." -- Enrico Mariani (reggio emilia, italy) --Enrico Marani (MovingBox, Reggio Emilia, Italy)
Tilomo is baby making music for robots. --King Britt (FiveSix Media)
