This tape sold so well and received such good reviews that they decided to release it on Compact Disc - and the improved medium does suit it. Eight tracks ranging from just over four minutes to nearly twenty. "2nd Birthday" opens play with an indistinct thing reminding me a little of POPUL VUH in their 'Indian' mode - the sounds in the background as twangy as sitar, combining with passive waves of bright and muted music, It has the composition of wind chimes or a distant Sunday Morning carillon - a certain randomness without sounding chaotic. "Introduction On A Rainy Terrace" is again a calm and reflective piece of improvised sound, defying you to seek out it's source of origin. It both seems to hang in the air like warm/cold static, yet seems ever-moving, in a gentle passive way. The epic "They Are Without Wings In The Fog" follows in it's gentle vapour trail, a stranger and more harsh track which has sudden, mysterious sounds appearing now and again. This again has cycling sitar-like sounds, combining in contrast against the phasing sounds which circle around in ever mutating curves until it all gradually collapses into yet another, and perhaps even stranger looped chain of sound events. This dies away to a gradually changing echo of minimal keyboards. Growing from these minimal ashes, another POPUL VUH-type thing - passive music with beautiful rippling guitar - takes over, carrying the track, through wierd territory, to it's conclusion. "The Other Side Of The Terrace" once more enters the "P.V" sound - passive, echoing guitar over drifting synthetic sound, yet avoiding falling into any tuneful trap. It grows and swells, yet never changes in any radical way, as if a potent atmosphere sealed inside a locked room. The next track is the oddly-titled "Tibetan Garage Band" which, despite it's title is actually a drifting, meandering piece (peace) of music, complete with bells and gongs (and discernable samples). "The Next Departure Has Been Delayed" opens on what sounds a lot like a sustained gong. A meltdown morass of background noise gradually joins it, echoing in an almost random pattern. "Modified Assembly-Line Behaviour" is another relatively long track, having a fairly dark and dramatic feel to it. It is also probably the most composed piece here and should please any of you Industriophiles who desire dark-film-soundtrack-like music. Its subtlety suggests much more than any OTT shouting and screaming ever could. Chilling & worth the price of the Disc just for this. The final track, again a long one, goes once more for the more passive, echoing, cycling sounds. It is subtle and veiled by half-muted sounds until joined by a simplistic drum rhythm of resonant toms which finally mutate into something much stranger. This finally becomes a more passive, almost ethereal sound, drawing the album to a close. Well worth seeking out. Even if the references to P.V. do not arouse your interest, I'm sure many people would like it. It's mainly quiet, passive, reflective, calming music, tones and harmonies to drift upon, with an added spice of strangeness and mystery to it. Great stuff! Originally reviewed for Soft Watch.
