For those of you who have never listened to Huerco S. (and also those who have). On a more serious note, this an outstanding album that captures the hypnotic, calming, soothing spirit of ambient. The cold, blurry, hazy kind which doesn't need to resort to excessive sweetness, yet slowly seduces you with it's mesmerizing, slightly cold tones. Future New Age Music.
Favorite track: Net.
Ulla’s productions reveal a discerning process of stripping tracks to their essence, letting space, silence, simplicity and repetition be her guide. They lend a magic touch to a difficult and minimal style of music, creating an album that is comforting and tranquil, yet hypnotizing and transportive. Most evidently, UIla’s music is inspired, by emotions and experiences unknown to us, but perhaps best represented in her own words:
“keeping pictures on a wall left there by someone else.
day dreaming about something not real.
hearing a friend walk through the front door.
letting a plant die.
the silence of a room when the box fan is turned off."
