Inspired by “birds-eye aerial images and the idea of perspective.”

Speaking about his creative process, Thorne shared: “I’ve long been a fan of studio-based composition, but have always found the infinite possibilities on offer daunting and, often, a stumbling block.”
“To get around this I set myself a challenge of limiting myself to the physical instruments in my possession – a few different saxophones and a bass synth, with no more than four tracks to record them.”
Lines of Sight follows Rival Consoles’ Them Is Us as well as Masayoshi Fujita’s Book of Life LP on Erased Tapes in 2018.
