In an interview with the Quietus back in 2014, Jozef van Wissem claimed that his goal was to bring the magical sounds of the lute to a wider audience. And the missionary tone of that piece hinted that the lute has unlocked something in Van Wissem's creative psyche over the years. A steady stream of solo and collaborative LPs over the past decade or so - around two a year - is testament to that. And where It Is Tim. oasted open-hearted tracks like 'Invocation Of The Spirit Spell', with Soapkills' Yasmine Hamdan, When Shall This Bright Day Begin is, essentially, Van Wissem, a lute, and an array of effects and samples given a twist in the studio. The tone on is set by the opener, 'To Lose Yourself Forever Is Eternal Happiness', which immediately sets the listener into a private world, looking out through a glass darkly. This new record, therefore, (like 2014's It Is Time For You To Return, on Marc Hollander's Crammed Discs label), is just the latest chapter in what is undoubtedly a life's work.
Van Wissem refreshingly brings a thorny, hard-edged beauty to his works, a sort of confrontational tenderness that runs circles around the listener. The first time I saw him play was at a bar in San Francisco on a Tuesday night. Sitting alone on stage with his lute, wearing a studded punk bracelet, he was easily overpowered by the crowd noise. But instead of politely asking everyone to be quiet, he simply kept playing while slowly edging away from the microphone. Pretty quickly, people noticed the silence and turned to the stage, bewildered. With Ex Patris, Van Wissem has achieved something rather rare: an album that is difficult to criticize, elegant, spare, haunting, beautiful and at the same time brimming with prickly attitude.

The longing tone lingers on even when the form becomes relatively more modern, as on less stately, arpeggiated songs like ‘You Can’t Remain Here’ and ‘Detachment’. These tracks have a folky flavour, but are also given a unique, hypnotic quality by Van Wissem’s deep, slightly sinister vocals, which deliver the repetitive fragmentary lyrics in a disturbed, ambivalent tone. Elsewhere, there’s a Max Richter-ish feel to a group of songs concerned with architecture and its philosophy
