More limited edition vinyl here from the ini itu label from Twinkle³. From the off this has a fresh feel about it, 'Let's Make A Solar System' has a playful uplifting vibe with its bleeps that make me think of beings communicating in some alien sonar language. The kit that Richard Scott, David Ross and Clive Bell employ is most impressive: Buchla Lightning, Analogue Synthesizer, Sampler, Hawaiian Tremola, Panart Hang, Kantele, Drosscillator, Sakuhachi. I haven't a clue what half of those instruments are but they do make some lovely sounds which at times feel oriental. Brett is reminded of Toru Takemitsu. There's a good mix of both the organic and synthetic elements. They're certainly doing something unique here and although it's an experimental record there's enough melody and warmth to make it very accessible. Nice underwater photography on the sleeve from Judith Goodman. I like anything to do with the sea. I'm going to be reicarnated as a mollusc.

9/10 funkychorlton Customer review, 26th September 2013

David Stubbs from The Wire #307 (September 2009) wrote of this disc:

In its silvery weave of ancient and modern (from Clive Bell’s shakuahchi to analogue synthesizers and samplers), and in the humble way in which its quite properly pretentious title is mooted, this is an album on which craftsmanship and a dazzling, celestial futurism are gently and devastatingly melded. Light trickles through the record’s every pore, from the utopian orientalism of “Scintilla” to the discreet, organic splendour of the two-part title track. Richard Scott and David Ross play alongside Bell, on inter alia, Buchla Lightning, percussion, Hawaiian tremolo, panart hang and “drosscilator”, instruments whose very names hint at the exquisite, aromatic impact of the album as a whole.
