Now I especially like this sort of music if some extra consideration is applied concerning where it's recorded, only if to attain the maximum levels of atmosphere. This Madison, WI duo have an utterly magical sound that merges dark/light ambience & fascinating field recordings with much loved bedfellows such as ponderous piano & sublime strings. They manage to achieve that rarest of things - ambient music that is capable of being incredibly evocative, mysterious & is incredibly detailed! I'm especially loving this ghostly neo-classicism & organic sound-art rubbing shoulders with such brilliantly eerie experimentation. I'm a bit stuck for words with this release as these lonely, minimalist passages can suddenly burst into the most beautiful tranquil glades of sound - tendrils of sleepy violin mixing it with recordings of crickets & hollow, clunking percussion that makes me smile & think of Moondog. This is absolutely the best thing i've heard on RW since the Hare & the Moon CD aeons ago. I advise you to purchase without a flinch & drink this improvised beauty in slowly. This is is a remarkable, understated & thought-provoking work constructed from a dazzling array of instrumentation, yet never, ever feels cluttered!
