Peterborough, New Hampshire's Dave Seidel offers a microtonal ode to the four primal elements. Water, fire, earth and air are represented here by elegant synthetic sounds and digitally manipulated field recordings. Working primarily in Csound, Seidel sculpts swathing drones and digital flutters into monolithic representations of his natural subjects. Technicians will undoubtedly consult Seidel's notes included in the album's digital packaging as well as the more extensive essays on his personal website for details of these tracks' construction, while aesthetes will simply lose themselves in their overwhelming beauty.
