Pocka’s “tbs” lingers at the percussive end of the broad continuum known as ambient. The track is all tapped-metal sounds, things like prayer bells and mangled cymbals and dull blades snapping away. In turn, those individual sounds are filtered through sharp, mathematically unforgiving digital echoes, processes that render the source audio into something akin to shuffled cards of muted reflections. The result is a soft fabric made of countless tiny, hard elements.
