I have used the adjective “birch-branch dry” in the past to describe music like this that blends electronic percussion with live percussion and the way live percussion seems to snap the entire composition into focus when it drops. On Sievi’s “Birch Tree” live percussion is used to this effect along with the blending of acoustic piano an synthesizer to create a track that is riddled with these tiny micro melodies in service of the larger overall emotional narrative of the track. It’s easy to get completely lost in this complex and melancholy track.
