Warmth 'Parallel Inflection'
This is PITP-V007
PITP MMXIX LP Series [LISTEN/PURCHASE]
Celebrating the one year anniversary of his gorgeous third album, PITP is excited to announce a laconic version of Warmth’s 2018 monumental ambient release, ‘Parallel’ on both black and colored vinyl options. Available for the first time on vinyl, ‘Parallel Inflection’ features all arrangements from the ‘Parallel’ sessions, in addition to two previously unreleased versions / reworks of Concave and Parallel. This is limited to 175 units; 100 on black and 75 on transparent blue/black swirl. Pre-order LP and purchase digitally at PITP.bandcamp.com.
"Parallel has an almost spiritual quality to it. It is a soothing collection of weightless drones in one harmonious flow so hushed and still, so solemn and graceful that one cannot resist sinking into a state of tranquillity and deep reflection.”
"With a majestic mastering help of the one and only Taylor Deupree, Mena weaves slow-burning ambient textures that capture the frequency spectrum across its peaks and valleys, always evolving, and breathing, like waves. It’s easy to drown in its insistent washes that cradle the listener dully to sleep, but, if instead, you spend this hour as an active listener, you will discover the many intricacies hidden within, which always reward upon the numerous rotations."
"Warmth makes ambient music of a fearsome purity."
-- Spectrum Culture
"Parallel is the kind of album to offer truths as unique and varying as the individuals willing to seek them, drawing from memory and personal experience to create an aural landscape unique to each listener."
--Stone In Focus
‘Parallel’ is a deeply meditative album that further proves the Valencia-based artist is a forerunner in Minimalist Ambient."
Written and produced by Agustín Mena
Mastered at 12K Mastering by Taylor Deupree

PITP is very excited to announce that Tyresta is now part of the PITP artist roster! Tyresta is the solo music project of Chicago-based social worker and musician Nick Turner. He started the project in 2016 in hopes to create music that would encourage both himself and others to breathe, slow down, and connect with the present moment. Nick utilizes various instruments including modular and semi-modular synthesizers in order to create emotive and engaging instrumental music.
PITP is very excited to announce that drone/ambient duo NUM is now part of the PITP Roster! NUM is an electronic duo formed by Maryam Sirvan and Milad Bagheri in 2010 in northern Iran. The duo is now based in Tbilisi, country of Georgia.

NUM's music merges processed instruments, human voices, field recordings, and electronics to create an atmospheric, personal and colorful ambience.

"We find ourselves increasingly in a swell of solastalgia. Day to day, a vision of what might come to pass builds; one dystopian impression at a time. Solastalgia is not a new phenomena however, rather it has haunted us over the centuries. Change has never been humanities’ strong suit, but it has been our shadow. The perpetual ruptures in what we know and how we live are an inevitability; time takes no prisoners, no matter how tightly we might grasp things from moment to moment....
