R Seth Friedman, Factsheet Five, no. 64, July 14, 1998

Another compelling experimental recording from empreintes DIGITALes. Jonty Harrison makes heavy use of electronics and tape manipulation in a way that’s very old-school. However, unlike lots of the early experimental musique concrète, Harrison’s stuff is very lyrical, in a way that makes for a very enjoyable listening experience. Five tracks on this album, maxing out the disk at over 77 minutes. The final track Hot Air used samples from children’s ballons to create a mysteriouly textured piece. The production is chrystiline, allowing you to hear every nuance of this unique recording.
