This first collaboration between these two artists is one of the most beautiful ambient recordings I've ever heard. I have a few other cds by Alio Die (Stefano Musso) - every one of them is great, and his work just keeps getting better and better with each release. This album - a 2-cd set containing about 2½ hours of music - is, as another reviewer below stated, perfect for night listening. Night is a time of renewal - and this music has that effect on me. It's relaxing and intelligent - it can be enjoyed ambiently or attentively. There are keyboard-generated sounds, guitars, Indian instruments, and Stefano's trademark natural sounds (water, wind, insects, &c...). According to the notes, Stefano's parts were recorded first, in Italy, then sent to Mathias in Germany for his additions. The result is a very cohesive program - the pieces flow together beautifully, never sounding piecemeal.
Some critics write off this sort of music as `noise' or `sonic dabbling' - but in doing so they're simply showing the narrow ruts in which their minds travel. There's a great deal of thought and work that go into works such as this, and these two artists have created something very special and lovely here. I say keep it coming...and I'll continue to be on the lookout for more.

Anyone looking for a definition of "musical synergy," look no further than this first collaboration between Mathias Grassow & Alio Die (Stefano Musso.) These two masters of gentle ambience, abetted by Mathias' frequent musical partner Klaus Wiese, have created a sonic collage that contains wonderful melodies and luscious ear candy. Even the artwork is first rate. This is a double CD, so there is much to enjoy. Perfect accompaniment for a moonlit drive.

This is great music. I'm a fan of Robert Rich and Steve Roach and this music fits right in.

Expanding music for your consciousness. Not for most people though as it is too thought provoking. If you like to watch the rain and nature and contemplate, then this is the music for you.

If you like Brian Eno's ambient music, this album is a good place to travel to next. Works in the background and as serious listening material. Every listen brings out some hidden treasure.
