As an improviser of prodigious technique, once described by Herbie Hancock as "a dazzling piano player", Randalu's affinities are with the jazz musicians, but the forms and dynamics of his pieces also reflect a discerning sense of structure, and he has cited Estonian composers Erkki-Sven Tüür and Tõnu Kõrvits - both with albums of their music on ECM New Series - amongst his mentors.
'Absence' was recorded at Studios La Buissonne in the south of France in July 2017 and produced by Manfred Eicher.
