Natalie (Tusia) Beridze, with her multiple aliases (including TBA, TBA Empty, Nate Fisher), has been creatively active for already more than a decade and can be considered as one of the veterans of Georgian electronic music.
Despite the varied nature of her discography, piano features as her main instrument. It comes in all shapes and roles, as a background of ambient atmosphere or being a dominant point of whole albums. “Between The Naps” sees the piano assume both of these roles at separate occasions – so what we get here is some ambient mixed with piano music.
Because piano is not as electronically manipulated as usually in her music, it mostly stays in repetitive pattern-based classical minimalism territory. Beridze doesn’t present anything particularly new for herself here, but she presents it intricately and very pleasantly.
Recommended for listeners who’d like to hear Aglaia and Wim Mertens all in the same album.
