The sparse piano on “Movement One” reminded me of the forbidding moods on David Bowie’s amazing release “Outside”. By the time I got the the 3rd movement, I was already imagining a live performance and some psychedelic visuals to the material. “On the Run” by Pink Floyd came to mind when listening to the chaotic but colourful piece. “Movement Four” delivers broken up communications and unique use of samples much like the well-reviewed buzz act Oneohtrix Point Never. “Movement Six” is reminiscent of Trent Reznor’s soundtrack work, with it’s more linear beat and consistency. “Movement Seven” closes the release with some ominous bells (aren’t bells ALWAYS ominous?), and a general atmosphere of warning. A calm wake-up call, perhaps. The chord choices at the end are sublime, and give the release’s closing a strange calm. This is a good release for any fans of ambient or experimental electronic music.
