from Amazon:

Forget Darling's new age dabblings -- this CD and the work he had done with Bjornstad and others (The Sea and The River) on ECM is intensely brooding and beautiful.

"Choral" is simply one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've heard in the last ten years -- it rivals Arvo Part's work in austerity and beauty.

Hello! I found your blog really amazing and I would like to join to the mailing list, but the thing is that I don't find the link... I would appreciate if you can help me to discover it. Thanks a lot and grettings from México.

this sounds alluring, anything arvo part-like, and cello, is certainly worth hearing.. love any of the deep bowing cello especially mixed with ambient or daubed with loops.. anything with a bryars' or basinski backdrop.. exceptional postings continually flourish on this esoterically wonderful blog, beautifully informed as well.. terrific, and many thanks.... a.

Very very relaxing slow music, ideal for a fast world. Thank you.

another fantastic post. damn, margot, how do you do it? i've heard a lot of cello music but there's something otherworldly about this that sets it apart. absolutely love it.

my friend is familiar with David (i wasn't) and suggested the collab "Eos" with Terje Rypdal.. if ya'll are holdin', please do some postin'!
