brantly Arresting neo-classical that ebbs and flows in pensive washes of strings and carefully measured movements of understated melancholy, rebirth and a calm resignation. A beautiful and wonderfully effective LP in its sanguine sadness. .

George Graphy I don't really like most ambient music, but some I do. This album is one of them. It feels soft, but yet it remains very interesting. Favorite track: Cistern.

about

Cistern is an album inspired by time Bischoff spent improvising in an empty, two-million-gallon, underground water tank, with a 45-second reverb decay. The unique acoustics of the space forced Bischoff to slow down and adapt his compositional approach - something which, unexpectedly, brought him back to his childhood, and the slow-pace of life he experienced growing up on a sailboat.
