Interesting and at points darn unsettling what-the-heck-was-that? minimalism here which was apparently recorded mostly using sounds from the artist's home which made me think two things. Firstly, that's kind of cool and very inventive, and secondly if I heard some of these noises around my home I'd probably want to move out sharpish. Ghostly voices and clicks and unidentifiable sounds float in and around proceedings, and being one long 20 minute-plus track it can get a little oppressive and feels a bit the audio equivalent of that brief time before your eyes open in the morning unsure if you're awake or dreaming. Quite different to the other CD of his reviewed here and not for everyone, but worth checking out if this kind of thing is your bag.
