Austere but extremely convincing electronic music, with a mid 60s Columbia-Princeton aesthetic - but realised through contemporary computer technology.
Extremely listenable and decentered, but with fine attention to sonic detail and perceptible structure.
The more I listened the more I appreciated its break with the sampling, glitching and audible software cliches that dominate the laptop music of today. There are excellent sleeve notes with background, explanation and meditation.
Altogether an unusual release.
