"Explorations in Sound, Vol. 4 The Sound of Live Performance - Various 
Artists" (feature)
The live sound and music performance is like no other medium for 
expression and unpredictability, frequently yielding interesting sonic 
results, both on, and off stage. Sound checks, sound failures, the 
misassigned patch, unintended playing outcomes, FX overloads / 
calibrations and pinnacles of performative exploration can all create 
sources for eclectic new material.

"Chance Reconstruction - M. Ostermeier" (review)
M. Ostermeier's piano-based compositions inhabit a similar wistful sound 
world to other post-classical artists, but his electronics provide more 
of an irregular ambiance for the piano rather than commenting on the 
delicate melodies directly. Chance Reconstruction is the first 
full-length album from an artist with an eclectic background in 
post-rock and independent music in Minneapolis.

"Edward Rizo — Soundscapes I" (review)
Volume One of Edward Rizo's Soundscapes is constructed from smooth and 
serene electronics that creates its own sense of place. Deep bass and 
sounds mysteriously appearing from nowhere suggest a subaquatic 
environment, isolated and reverberant.

"Fragments" (review)
Steve Roberts takes parts of his past, arranging them to create new 
pieces, the resulting Fragments essentially remixes of tracks from three 
previous Amongst Myselves albums. In many places single musical sounds 
get a refresh through re-setting them against field recordings; their 
deployment throughout serves to render Fragments a flowing whole.

"Music In Four Movements" (review)
Talvihorros deploys an array of instruments to touch various musical 
bases on Music In Four Movements, which dwells on the emotional dynamic 
of a suicidal impetus. An ostensibly bleak theme, but it presages no 
doom-laden death ambient suite; a more ambiguous tenor presides, at 
times hymnal, amid the murk and midden in an evolving involving suite.
review by Alan Lockett

"Out and About" (review)
On Out and About Herion's melding of post-classical sonorities with an 
expansive remit issues in a kind of spatial chamber music with shifting 
cadences which might be designated 'post-ambient'. Marzorati’s piano 
motifs, mixed with Coniglio’s melodica, harmonica, and treated guitar, 
all commingle sonorously in Errante’s settings.
review by Alan Lockett

"Over Pass" (review)
The latest release on Gears Of Sand from Montreal's Skinwell sits well 
in the label's collection of works, in the corner where post-industrial 
and ambient consort. Of 50-plus exhibits in GoS’s exhibition halls, the 
contents of Over Pass are among the most densely layered sound sheets 
hammered out in Delaware or anywhere you care's foundries.
