Polished and flawless, as it is, could have made the album hollow and easy to forget. But Dk (as he refers to) is equipped with not just a sense of direction and musicality to prevent it from becoming an all-surface product, but also his careful attention to detail elevates his works to something more than a “look-what-I-can-do” project.
One such detail is the choice of collaborators, though not many. To prove our point, we recommend you invest 4 minutes and 20 seconds in the video for ”La Fiancée de l’Atome” where album guest Helena Noguerra, softly scats a no-words “lullaby” to Daven-Keller’s piano, surrounded and lifted by unassuming strings.
