Comment: Yesterday in the evening I started to listen to this 4-track issue. I guess the title justifies and celebrates itself though it was too early then to fall asleep. Today I started to listen to it early in the morning and it sounded like a revelation. At Clematis one could hear organic and undulating electronic sounds to be mixed up together being especially suitable for an idyllic morning time. Despite it one could hear a pleasant tension between those multiple layers and effects. Maybe it is not even tension; maybe it is a burden of real layers and imaginative pictures, which follow to each other unceasingly. For instance, at Fossil all those sounds embark on from nowhere and then it slowly build up to culminate in the silence-drenched orchestration of microscopic drones and ambient hovers. One can imagine a (ghost) ship nearing to the bay and then suddenly disappear without any traces. Mysticism meets mundane. There is also one sonic element, which comes across all four compositions - frequently the layers seemed to be played at different speeds, you can enjoy enchanting phase shifts coming in and running out of the focus. In general, music is poignantly majestic and touchingly ennobling. The swathes of ambient music are saturated with droning glitches, electro-acoustic crackles, digitalized hums all those elements are perfectly, I mean seamlessly spliced and forged into the dignifying whole. What else would you like to get from within it? I guess you will feel fairly relaxed after you have listened to it. It might act upon like a simulacrum to hide a world being much up in flames in reality. It is a simply perfect experience, which could also be tagged as holophonic poetry, and subtle soundfields. Behind the project is the Japanese Yasutica Horibe. The issue is a part of the discography of MiMi Records.
