Robert Heel is still fascinated by the sound reverberation of huge underground caves, vast spaces, natural
surroundings, as well as sound reverberation in human made architecture.
In his past productions he has experimented with lots of field recordings, as well
as with analog synths to create huge echo spaces, which remind of underground caves.

In "Xars" he developes the idea in the direction of deep and dubbed out techno, creating more
architectural spaces, using sound and field recordings of big "unnatural" city spaces such as
garages and cellars, as well as nature recordings.

The emphasis is on vast echochambers, some elements are live recordings, others are arranged
productions. He pushes more in the direction of using tape pops, crackles and interferences as well as
click n cut sounds from his two noise modules to create significant percussive sounds.
He incorporates lots of field and sound recordings, from heavily modified nature recordings to
garage door openers, steps, stones and glitches from old cassette tapes.

Limited to 33 copies, further 7 handsigned copies were given to friends.
