Restless and hyper-creative HNW wizard Ivan Sandakov (of Sleep Column and so many more fine projects) shifts gears and turns in a lengthy suite of absolutely, astonishingly and breath-takingly lovely ambient composititons. The three pieces here are deep and beautifully constructed meditations on loss and hurt, the pain of memories drifting into oblivion along with the meaning of one's life. I have found these pieces to be very moving and incredibly emotional; this record gives me goosebumps. Definitely in the Basinski/Dunn/Drumm vein, with some Tim Hecker and Troum thrown in for good measure. I do not make those comparisons lightly. This release is gorgeous; certain to be in my top 10 noise/drone releases for the year.
Packaged in a DVD case, with minimal artwork done by the artist himself. Released in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies.
