Over the course of three albums Eluvium (aka Matthew Cooper) has crawled from total obscurity to his rightful place as one of America's premier modern composers. Tying up his career to this point - and acting as a companion piece to "Talk Amongst the Trees" - the four pieces on "When I Live by the Garden and the Sea" showcase both the neoclassical piano-driven elegance and the tidal drones that he has become almost famous for. It takes his explorations in sound and vision to their logical conclusion, clearing the way for a new phase to be unleashed on his next album in spring 2007.
