If this isn't the most appropriate and on brand of Erased Tapes releases, I don't know what is. The quaintly classical and electronic label release the soundtrack to David O'Reilly's open world, choose-your-own-adventure video game that lets you project yourself into a tiny plant cell or a huge star. The vibes scored in this spectrum of extremes are provided by Ben Lukas Boysen and Sebastian Plano, composers who know how to create weight in the heart for you to heave -- their soundtrack is nearly four hours long and comes with spoken word amblings by Alan Watts, a philosopher just about lofty enough for this massive undertaking of a game.

8/10 Jamie Staff review, 25 July 2017

“No!”, I said to my overly-literal brain, doing a double-take; that’s Ben Lukas Boysen with Sebastian Plano, not Seb PIANO. But you can see how I could be (easily) confused. It’s becoming that kind of week, but the creaking weight of hundreds of overblown Arcade Fire LPs atop our own Norman verbiage has been offset by the light neo-classical strains of this lovely atmosphere-leavening record airing in our bleak office today.

It’s truly an Erased Tapes experience to savour, this: our heroes Ben and Seb have fashioned an intricate, highly nuanced terraforming soundscape to soundtrack your own potential transfiguration (within the context of the game it accompanies). ‘Everything’ is an interactive game from creator David O’Reilly; I guess this music is for listening to as you explore desert plants from within as an aloe molecule or maybe you fancy becoming a star on Orion’s belt? Whatever, here is the twinkling, sparsely probing co-voyager. Strings and, yes, piano take you there.

Sometimes the piano sounds as pretty and chiming as a harp. Beautifully light, deft touches on weepy violin and cello. The journey is enveloped with a sheen of starlit ambience: gorgeous electronic percussive timbres, soft choirs and some spoken word from a philosopher.  All’s well and good, and the total experience is ready for you to well and truly immerse yourself into, for its total duration of 4 hours no less. 10 tracks on the CD and LP, a total of 43 to download, supplied separately. You may as well dive in.
