A glorious ambient work by two masters of the genre. The entire album has a mysterious vibe, focusing on building tension and releasing it in brief moments of clarity.
Favorite track: These Storms Cast Shadows on the Ocean.

Markus Reuter has earned acclaim for his work as a composer, guitarist, guitar designer, sound designer, producer and teacher. Long-time collaborator with King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto in TUNER, Markus tours the world in Stick Men with Mastelotto and bassist Tony Levin. His duets with Ian Boddy have led to many respected albums on Boddy's DiN label, while his group Centrozoon and his epic orchestral work Todmorden 513 show different sides of his maverick nature. Reuter also collaborated with Robert Rich on their previous release "Eleven Questions" (2007.)
Robert Rich has helped define ambient and electronic music with dozens of albums across four decades. He began building synthesizers in 1976, and studied computer music at Stanford's CCRMA while earning a degree in Psychology, researching lucid dreaming. His all-night sleep concerts became legendary. Along with performing and recording, Rich designs sounds for synthesizers and media, teaches and lectures worldwide, and has mastered hundreds of albums.
