The musical philosophy that I am gradually growing into is without a notion of “genre”. Eclectic, it seeks to mesh and juxtapose, thoughtfully and with attention, sonic content from any origin. All music is on equal footing in terms of inspiration towards my creative output. This album, embraces aspects of world music – specifically the classical music of South India and its rhythmic aspects – expressed through patterns of recession and growth, nuanced polyrhythm and stretched and extended time cycles. Attention given to how time and space can be experienced in great detail and accuracy by way of interacting macro and micro level compositional frameworks. Emphasis also given to the careful balance between intricate written composition and “spontaneous composition” – i.e. improvisation. Exploring what lies between these two polarities often the catalyst for much of the meaningful musical dialogue and personal expression unfolding.

Ron Schepper (Textura) writes "Insofar as it's represented on Spillimacheen, Choboter's music suggests the sensibility of a restless artist not necessarily ready to abandon conventional territory yet nevertheless eager to push beyond it in search of something more adventurous. Witnessing him engage in the process makes for exciting listening when the paths the music takes are unpredictable, as if the pianist and his partners are charting new routes with fresh discoveries emerging as they do so."
