'Truth tends to reveal it's highest wisdom in the guise of simplicity.' Neitzche's sentiments are echoed solidly on the second release from Abstract Audio Systems. From the opening melodies of 'Lucid Dream' to the final breath of 'Aedon', this CD is full of floating, soothing textures and soundscapes. Interspersed are some darker tunes as well. The glitchy, dub-esque bass tones of 'Nanomein' and the swirling static of 'Othela' serve as counterpoints to the more blissful moments here, yet do not interupt the overall flow of the CD. Abstract Audio Systems continues to experiment with the manipulation of sound and the exploration of it's affects on feeling and emotion and this release serves as a continuing blueprint for that approach.
