The music echoes and reflects nature. The nature squeaks, screeches, hisses and whistles through the velvet yet discordant sounds of the horns as well as through the spacious, frequently tribal sounding rhythms that are constantly active while maintaining a sense of sparsity. Such a reflection can be disastrous, but here, the players approach the recreation of primitivism with reservedness that prevents dispersal. There is a welcomed openness to the recording which invites you to be engulfed by the sonics, rather than being struck by them.
As the album unfolds, as evident on “Alternate Presents and Multiple Focus” but even more prominent on “The Gates of Horns,” melodic sparks creep in, illustrating the alignment of nature to create harmonious beauty. (7.9/10)
