A dreamy mystical continuum of abstract migration made of tape delays and vocal and violin stylings. Yes, it's squidlike, but maybe even more so in a Lovecraftian way in parts. Dreamy does not mean unfocused here, for these recordings are solidly coherent even if totally abstract. It's a fertile ground for the imagination that has hidden in it elements of universality.
Track three experiments with a sound check, using cut-ups from microphone recordings. Track four is the perfect soundtrack for a haunted house, with it's spectral voices and noises that seem to emanate from all around. This reviewer has worked in the retail Halloween business, so calling this spooky is a complement. Overall, this CD totally connects to a greater unknown reality.
