  • "Disfold" is my proudest achievement -- the CD album, released by Sending Orbs (who had to push it back by almost a year as I pulled it out of the release schedule when I felt like I wasn't satisfied) and beautifully illustrated by Jeroen Advocaat, that gave me a name in the ambient and dub circles. Ten years on and it's still some of my best work, with a cohesive narrative throughout from start to finish, incorporating field recordings made in Finland, Netherlands, New York and Seattle.

    The album itself tells a story of a personal relationship with someone, the start, the tumultuous middle and finally the end. Best listened to in the wintertime, or when you're slightly depressed.

At what point in their development did cities start their expansion into the earth?
Finland's Juho Hietala takes us through a perpetual urban twilight of subways, underground railway stations, pipes and conduits.
Meticulously tweaked, "Diacedita" is a precise articulation of a muffled existence, trapped beneath artificial light. Events take place far away, their presence rendered indistinct by the time they reach you. "Revelation 21:1" captures the distant noise of machineparts grinding against eachother. "Frame Math is a rippling fountain of indistinct sounds, while the barely discernable rhythms of "Nyt Revisited" come closest to evoking a city where no one has a home, merely a destination.
