Stumbled on this gem by accident. Guess it was October 2003 Hazard was the opener of a 3-groups-festival at Antwerp. After his short, but awesome atonal set i went downstairs to take a look at the recordsales. One of those guys had some stuff to offer from the Touch label. Bought 3 Biosphere and a Hazard album. Next morning i saw one of those Biosphere's was this one. But when i heard the first note i was touched already, deep inside. An unbelievable fragile beauty. It s rather classical with a soft electronic touch which can become strong atonal on scarce moments. Never again i m the same again after hearing this one. *Very* recommended and a blessing for ears, Soul and hi-tech equipment.
