This is, as you might expect from the title, a compendium of the various 7” between the two ambient heavyweights. One of the 7”s is in fact still available from us making a mockery of my review where I erroneously claimed that “it will sell out promptly”. To be fair this is music that works much better over the course of a CD, where you can put it on, lie back and drift off into another world. On these collaborations Celer’s soft evocative drifting is tempered (I presume - I’m no expert) by Machinefabriek’s but scattergun approach with shards of found dialogue and field recordings cutting through the billowy drift.
Unlike many of these types of releases, the pieces are short (presumably to be 7” friendly) and very concise. You get seven original pieces then a series of remixes by the likes of Sylvain Chauveau, Nicolas Bernier and Stephan Mathieu.
