"An hour long meditation in the grandest tradition of Klaus Shulze, Cosmic Jokers, Conrad Plank and other synth fetishists. 'impermanence' is a deeply atmospheric piece recorded exclusively on vintage, analogue synthesizers. the soundscape ranges from deep trenches of space inflected with melodic strains, picked out like the music of the spheres, to colossal white noise pillars of monophonic slabs. taken as a whole there's a unique atmosphere that binds the shards of analogue sound together."
Michael Kasparis (Rough Trade)
"A fantastic collage of everything in the artist's head, all tumbling out and wired-up wrong. This is an album steeped in the experimentalism of Krautrock and really fucked-up folksike, the sorta thing that would get a release in the mid-70s, leaving everyone completely confused, later to become something of a cult classic"
