    The plaintive and deeply moving strains of dissected and recombined vocal phrases here leaves one perpetually mesmerized by its effect. Rabelais' careful and exacting work captures the environment-as-sound method of Eno's "Neroli", but in context of a uniquely human experience.

    For fans of VOX Diadema's near-iconoclastic "Hildegard Von Bingen" chant recomposition style, Rabelais manages to take the essential soul of this idea to new and compelling heights.

      There is something magical about this music. It appears to come from afar as though one is listening to rain falling in the middle of the ocean, while one is inside the water. When I listened to it the first time I felt somehow that this would be how memories would sound like, soft, distance and haunting. The usage of the norwegian folk song reminds me of Mahlers use of the Laender in his symphonies. A reminder of a cultural and emotional artifcat that once was and will not be again.
