This is widely (and rightfully) considered one of the top ambient/drone albums ever crafted, and yet at the same time it is anti-ambient per excellence. If Brian Eno termed 'ambient' his sonic wallpapers and harmless background music, Pauline Oliveros builds huge behemoths of sound that require full attention and conscious effort to follow. Oliveros always stressed the difference of hearing and listening, and this is an ascesis of precise, demanding, deep listening. After this, John Cage's 4'33'' is just a bad joke.

I read about this album on one of those anonymous articles about the origins of ambient but i remember distinctly that's where i read the word "Drones" for the first time. Almost 20 years passed, i love music even more and i listened to a huge amount of drones but this one still remains the best and most iconic drone work.
Please, please, please reissue this! Possibly on a proper 180gr audiophile vinyl :-)
