Savvas Ysatis, aka Omicron, produced an oft-overlooked gem in 1994 with this album. His music here is warm and enveloping, with carefully-layered textures that reward repeated plays.
Although "Acrocosm" has an unmistakably analogue feel to it, with much careful use of pops and clicks, and filters shaping sounds into and out of the foreground, it manages to sound beautifully naturalistic in a way that reminds me of Boards Of Canada's "Music Has The Right To Children", albeit with a more German feel.
This is one of my favourite ambient albums, and rarely spends more than a few weeks at a time out of my player.

I agree with the other reviewer this is an overlooked gem. Many great songs on here but my favorites ( yours may vary of course ) are Earth Rider and Tranquility Base. Earth rider has that deep bass tone, almost like blowing into a large clay pot or something like that and then has a wonderful sequenced line with great melody driving the tune. A sonic gem and will test the mettle of a good sub-woofer and stereo as well as reward the ears with some great chill-out/ambeint music. Tranquility Base is in my top ten of electronic pieces of music. It a warm, relaxing and just a little tickly quality to it as all the layers come together to form a wonderful song. It always puts a smile on my face and is great for relaxing. If you can still find this CD, buy it! You'll love it !!!
