Runtime: 29'46''

«The final album of the trilogy, ‘Interiors’, leaves the material world altogether, and is concerned only with the internal spiritual paths of the mind. The journey is now one of thought alone, not physical travel or the concerns of status,
material wealth or influence. The complex balance of sounds includes many
custom-made effects, and the sampling of the static from a record-player that has long finished playing music.» - Thom Carter

«And so the trilogy has come to an end. 'Interiors' sees Thomas working his way out of more identifiable musical patterns, like syncopated beats and even guitars, making this last album perhaps the most accessible of all three. 'Structures' is so imbued in pop music languages that could easily be played on the radio or at some bar or nightclub. Solid work here.» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«I first came across Minimal States a year ago with their release City of Buffalo on Clinical Archives and Digital Kunstrasen and I’ve been hooked ever since. Listen to “Alternatives”to see what I mean. Thom Carter aka Minimal States has put out several free releases over the last year and each has been equally as good. This August, test tube releases their third Minimal States album, Interiors, which the artist says is the final of his trilogy which includes like a photograph and Liberty Hoax. Interiors is a wonderful electronic album and I especially love “Structures”,  an electronica piece that could have been included on a Tangerine Dream album from late 70s. Download these three releases from test tube as well as City of Buffalo. You too will be sold.»
