Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"To listen to Berceuses et Nocturnes, is to enter a hallucinatory night-realm animated with hypnagogic serenades and starlit reveries. The music derives its influence from Indonesian gamelan and Satie's chimerical piano works, but also the Reichian-indebted minimalism of Chicagoan post-rockers Tortoise and woozy time-warping turntablist mumble of The Caretaker. Rarefied meditations, glistening particles lingering like lullaby kisses upon the lips of the heavy-lidded, as he sows his radiant constellations, cosmic tintinnabulations ringing through obsidian night, haunting the great halls of sleep."-Shhpuma

Also available as a vinyl LP.
