Though the sparse packaging leaves a little to be desired (as is always the case with Oöphoi's self-released CDRs), these seven 3" CDs are some of his best recent drifting drones.

Each is a self-contained mood or theme that develops fully over twenty or so minutes, never wearing out its welcome. The discs also have good flow when played back-to-back.

This set is one of Gasparetti's better new releases, though sometimes one wonders if it is quite necessary to be an Oöphoi completist given the sameness of many of his releases—this set would be a good purchase over his "Time Fragments" volumes 4-6, as an example, which were far less intriguing.
