On four sides of an album, each from a different part of the day, the visual and participatory aspects of this are of course missing, but the sound is still unique and immersive. Tiny variations in the drones occur throughout, sometimes breaking into ghostly shapes a la Soliloquy For Lilith, with every slight change in the room's atmosphere and the movements of observers. If you're in the time and place to completely lose yourself in this for 75 minutes, prepare to be transported. Drone hypnosis doesn't get much more minimal than this.
