Seattle-based composer and improviser J.C. Combs presents an EP of processed piano recordings, each of the three pieces serving as a sonic reverie between worlds.

"The overall processing is quite low, but it adds a fine alienation to the music, drifting beyond the regular piano music. In 'Apparition', the longest of the three, Combs plays arpeggio's that stop as strangely as they started. I think this was all very nice indeed, reminding me of some of Akira Rabelais' music..." - Vital Weekly

"In each the piano is a distinct element that quite suddenly bleeds into a broader digital aura, as in the opening track, “Recycled Piano,” during which the listener might think that a piano string had come loose and started vibrating all on its own. In “Apparation,” a pulse of a steady beat triggers the sonic equivalent of a lens flare. It’s a beautiful collection, and comes highly recommended." - disquiet

"The composition side of Combs’ work really shines in “Apparition,” which travels through many movements until reaching a peaceful and relaxing end..." - What's Up! Magazine
