Originally released in 1993 under the band-name Solitaire, this 57 minute collaboration has recently been reissued under its musicians' names.
During this atmospheric music, tribal percussives are more prominent, giving the soundscapes a richer quality with their undulating rhythms. Analog and digital synthesizers produce a variety of somber tones which create a misty ambience that trembles with suspense.
Crystalline electronics flavor the music, elevating it further from the realm of ambience. The mood of runic territory receives fresh strength with these melodies, with antiquity manifesting through modern technologies.
