Many albums in the Attenuation Circuit Eco Series are split releases, but this hour-long composition is a true collaboration with 50 percent input from both US-based drone artist Mystified and German poet and sound artist Martyn Schmidt. Starting with a poem, Schmidt's voice morphs into pure vocal improvisation and breathing both processed to amalgamate Mystified's acoustic drones. The result sounds at times like La Monte Young meeting Morton Feldman or like Norwegian jazz singer Sidsel Endresen imitating deep bass strings with her voice.
