"Each (composition) is a sonic environment, a utopic or virtual space in which the physical dimensions, temperatures, textures and vectors of travel are all dictated by sound. [...] They are all the intellectually richer for revealing their inspirations in art and cartography, but they do not depend on those narratives for their success, which is why what you are holding in your hand is such an exciting recording. This really is, as the label has it, music with its ear to the future."
