Finally the release date of the new Deaf Center album, “Low Distance” (Sonic Pieces) is here. From today on it is available on all digital platforms as well as CD/LP. This is the first collaborative studio album by the duo of Erik K Skodvin & Otto A Totland since their album Owl Splinters (2011). That very album has also been given a lavish re-packaging as a gatefold 2LP on Miasmah. It includes the Svarte Greiner re-interpretation album Twin as well as new cover-art with photos by cinematographer Joshua Zucker-Pluda. Twin is also available digitally for the first time.
Deaf Center will play live in Brussels at the BRDCST festival during the Sonic Pieces 10 year anniversary evening, April 4th.

A selection of incoming reviews / quotes
(will be updated)
“Erik K Skodvin & Otto A Totland have made any anticipation that much easier by delivering a work of boundless opulence” - Toneshift
“The unmistakable melancholic feel of Deaf Center is no less present than before but it has found a lighter, more spacious and less eerie form of expression” - Passive / Aggressive
”This music draws its immense beauty from subtlety and deliberate restriction, so is pretty much the opposite of the boasting grandiosity and virtuosity of the typical " Nils Frahm " neoclassical” - Groove.de
”They strip the music to the bone, to create extremely urgent pieces with it that no note is wasted” - Subjectivisten
