This one single track enters a similar area to MICK HARRIS's driftwork project LULL while possessing a stripped-down structuring which brings VIDNA OBMANA / STEVE ROACH's collaborations to mind. Add to this a location recording ambience and you've pretty much got a concise description of this album.
It sounds as if whatever source sounds were used have been looped then overlayed one on top of another, building a strangely smooth journey which seems almost commercial and accessible at times but never actually escapes from it's linear passage. Not dark, black or grey, you might therefore assume that it is a less formed New Age, but again it evades that easy pigeon hole.

You never get chance to focus on any single point for long, and where it's charms seduce you, they leave you wanting more.

Strange without being too obviously alien; enchanting without being glib, this is an easy listening unstructured work which falls between established genres and should therefore have either a wide appeal or be too extreme for many tastes. I was intrigued and charmed, often disturbed, sometimes lulled.
