Comment: in the first place, I am very glad to be back at the discography of Portugal-based imprint Crònica of which releases seem to be something peripheral and idiosyncratic and stunning. For instance, by listening to this 4-track issue of clocking in at a 28 minute it is an amalgamation of found sounds and manipulated electronics/glitches which used to result in something dreamy and affording physical relief. All these compositions are titled by those places where the concrete sounds had been stored (Lake Mooste; Wind from Põlva; Song of The Lilac; Delta of the River Emajõgi). For me, it is a very special outing because these ones have been done in the south(eastern) Estonia, nearby my childhood places and the dispersion area of my relatives. Partly because of that and partly because of the grandeur of the soundscape it taps into my soul and brain. At Sireli Aeg one can enjoy subtle drones and bubbling electronics and Mira Tarvainen`s vowel effects and staggering chants. At Emajõgi Delta there are up glitched-out spatial dimensions being developed to perfection. Mostly the music is wondrous and sometimes sad at its core. In a nutshell, it is a great issue being related to a cultural laboratory, MoKS in Mooste.
