More than four years have passed by since Tastenklangs first album saw the light of the day and now we face his second composition, an album of 14 tracks offering relaxed, well tempered, melodic and spirited pieces. The artist, who already has proven with his first album "Inspirations" to bring a smile in the face with easing sounds of chill has taken a development. Each of the 14 tracks between 3 and 6 minutes tells a little self-contained story but melts to a complete unit like an orange in a fruitbasket is delicious itself but involves all senses as part of the overall appearance. "Polyphony" is an album of great diversity.

The more I listen to Johan's beautiful thematic compositions, the more I can appreciate his talent for intriguing melodies and atmospheric sounds and rhythmic sequences. This album is no exception, I can highly recommend it. Martin Richter
Johan Tronestam is another great discovery on Bandcamp! With this album he has created a very programmatic, rhythmically accented, melodic and easily accessible yet high quality musical storytelling drama - instrumental synth pop at its very best!! I enjoy every single of these tracks - give it a try, too! Martin Richter
