“It is as though the storm is scolding the foot of the mountain
And the petals of the cherry tree fall like snow
The moment fills me with compassion
The rains of spring arrive and fall like tears
The blossom falls like rain
It is a world full of regret”

The second album by Andrew Chalk & Timo van Luijk.
While the debut album ‘Echos Pastoraux’ (La Scie Doree) had the sentiments of a homely
sketchbook memory,’La Lumiere Parfumee’ is a new collection of eight pieces,bringing
a more elaborate repertoire with delicate acoustic and electronic arrangements
in an impressionistic pallette of pastel shades and shimmering opalescent rays.
