Michael Mueller A cracking collection of found sounds interspersed with dark drones.

There's an austere, mournful quality to a lot of this, but there's also really pronounced sense of musicality and narrative. Each piece coheres into the whole.

The production is superb; the low notes and pulses have real power, and the crispness of the higher-pitched elements is what gives this album such a profoundly defined sense of space.

Fans of darker-edged ambient drone really should investigate this. It's top shelf. Favorite track: Silence / Rise.
