9/10 Brian Staff review, 23 May 2014
It's worth glancing at the passionate little press release for this set to glean just what you are getting for your money. The box alone is a cracking, sturdy piece of graphic art that you could use for stamps, small feathers, locks of deceased loved-ones hair or your favourite narcotics if you ever tire of the contents. Which is unlikely as the sounds and art/poetry cards contained therein are a real joy.
The music is based around wordless vocal/choral chant manipulations; micro-electronics; eerie, implicitly deployed church organ washes and shifting ambient sonics. To say it is truly unusual, verging on the remarkable is fair, I think. The second piece, for instance, distinctly recalls Biosphere's work with the Higher Intelligence Agency with, say, the sustained ghostly primal wails of early Inca Ore or Fursaxa laid over the top. It's a beautiful, spiritually enriching listen throughout that I don't quite feel qualified to say lots of insignificant words about.
Following my half hour of immersion in 'Weather Patterns', I must state that we have here a very personal, zen-like journey that will appeal to fans of contemporary choral composition, absorbing sound art/field recordings and electro-acoustic works. I'd definitely say it's a reasonably accessible collection; not over-abstracted or pretentious by any means. This is beautiful music that results in a fantastical, atmosphere-drenched CD which is made even lovelier by the inclusion of the serene multimedia inserts that accompany the package.
