Comment: in this collaborative album a couple of long-running compositions are expertly presented. All those microscopic and minimalist changes in timbre and motives, overlapping droning and electro-acoustic elements create something of a drunken mood. At times the changes are remarkable and clean-cut, for instance at Gaping Gap at a 12 minute when cathedral-alike organ layers will be added to the mix. Indeed, the change is formidable as if an example of reversed/black church music. Later on, some concrete sounds/sea waves will be added to the mix thereby the track will end in a tranquil mood. Kaleidonoise deserves its name thoroughly because a shitloads of sonic elements will be added to the track. For instance, the listener could discern wind-up sounds juxtaposed against faint symphonic progressions which thereafter will be changing and rendering into different patterns. The listener could listen to many thought-provoking sonic combinations which frequently sound psychedelically. It is more indie music by its nature than most of those ensembles considered under the tag stylistically. Moreover, it is a vivid drift between conscious and subliminal levels, between the visible and hidden. In a word, the result is a spellbinding glimpse into an universe where no one could feel himself/herself safely. Apparently. The issue is a part of the discography of Dadaist Audio.
