Drifting Almost Falling: “The music of the album manages to traverse musical landscapes within tracks and from piece to piece. There are times when you feel you are listening to a Gamelan record or a glitchy electronica one and then there will be a piece which has a real earthy feel.  It is every bit earthy as it is futuristic and electronic with sounds that remind me of early Autechre percussion seen through an Asian inspired prism.  One thing that comes across in the pieces is that they feel both joyous and expressive, but also exploratory. It seems like Vandiver is a traveller of the world, as well as being acute about sound and the natural world, and that these pieces are less about music and more about telling stories.”
