At Once, There Was No Horizon is the fifth album from Vieo Abiungo. It arrives nearly 10 years after, 'Blood Memory' which served as both the first release for Lost Tribe Sound and for composer William Ryan Fritch under the alias. 

The new record is an expanse of impressionistic tonal color, where elliptical patterns of horns, reeds, bowed metals and the ecstatic chatter of unfamiliar percussion cluster, rise and decay. In moments, the exchange of timbral energy from instrument to instrument feels distant, alien, and disquieting, like walking into a sweltering forest where sounds shift and converse around you unrevealed. 

Ever-densening thickets of rhythm pummel the load-bearing frame of the upright bass. With a sudden rumble and snap, they break like the weight of a substantial branch. An overblown exaltation; one of impossibly close and intimately-keyed contrabass clarinet, baritone and alto sax, flute, euphonium and flugelhorn begin their convulsive dance. One can almost feel the pads of the woodwinds sealing before each note and every irregular breath or loosened embouchure becomes a rhythmic cadence unto itself.
