Blue Blue Circles:

Nice to see some interest in the works of Philip Jeck from viewers of this site. I'm always interested in good, meditative music that requires a certain appreciation of time and space. Call it deep listening. Call it drone. I call it night music. And Shenzhou, from Norwegian resident Geir Jensen (aka Biosphere) is a prime candidate for some nocturnal exploring.

Great care and attention seems to have been put into every tiny microcosm of this recording to make it's soft, subtle beauty stand out. This is not the kind of album that jumps out and says "hey, let's be ambient...let's chill out!" instead, it slowly creeps into your subconscious like a ghostly vapor that wraps you up within it's mystery and blends in deeply within your memories.
