a subtle but, at times, overwhelming release from johannsson – he invokes the most delicate pieces of max richter’s ambient compositions in a rich & cinematic way.

far from another post classical piece, he bridges the gap between ambient & classical in an inventive way that blends the lines between new age, orchestral movements & electronic modern composition. fans of the recent release from masayoshi fujita & jan jelinek should definitely check this out. unhurried passages of string melodies dominate, but often underpinned by unsettling notes of cello and bursts of shortwave radio” – 8/10 uncut
