Δαβίδ *In this sprawling audio "cycle", Stephan explores analogue sounds and drones that are peaceful, subtle and abstract at times. Like any large compendium, one must revisit it time and again to capture all that is exquisitely presented. If resolute, there are many beautiful rewards to discover here.
Best w/ headphones... Enjoy!

Rinchen Choesang Fantastic package containing some riveting minimalism. Every release in this box is a winner. I had previously listened to digital versions, but working through the CDs in the package on decent speakers reveals Stephan’s engaging mastering in all its glory. Bravo!

PS. Looking forward to receiving my Folio box soon!
