This release is a collaborative effort between Abstract Audio Systems and ambient composers Austere. The raw sound materials for this release were provided by Austere and subsequently manipulated and sequenced by AAS. The result is an ambient work inspired by the ideas of space and distance. These cold reaches can be heard in "Exo-bio", while "Blu" and "Atul" speak of the ocean's depths and the wildness of the unexplored. "Blackfilm" and "Unquiet" are much more claustrophobic, each mapping some secret, inner space that we ourselves are sometimes afraid to explore. The title track returns us to the light and reminds us of the comfortable spaces we build around ourselves.
A mini review from the Hypnos forums: "Throbbing, bass-heavy synth drones, wrapped around lighter, meandering passages... a very unique sound, I think. Some of these tracks seem as lonely and deep as the cover-art suggests. A tough nut to crack — very complex musically and emotionally, but once it hits you, you're hooked."
