8/10 Mike Staff review, 27 March 2014

Berlin-based sound artist Yair Elazar Glotman combines digital processing, analogue electronics, acoustic instruments and field recordings on this dense and mysterious album, a mixture of dark ambient atmospherics and gentle soundtracky melodicism. The sounds are constructed in seemingly haphazard texturescapes, all flickering static and shivering processed strings, digital glitches and wavering synth drones, it twitches in a dark, moist ooze of granular drones, intermittent twinkles and humming darkside dread.

In a way it’s quite slickly composed, with slowly-unfolding melodies hidden inside the constantly evolving tonescapes but a fluttering animalistic randomness to the details which keeps it sounding strangely natural despite the computerised aspects, like these sounds have been forged in the overcast wilds of nature away from human influence, particularly effective when he drifts between concord and discord on the chiling ‘High Tide’.

It’s not always the easiest listen but it’s absorbing and evocative throughout.
