Despite that the production and music are both of good quality, everything on “Circumbaikal” seems too short. It is as if each track calls it quits before it really has a chance to get off the ground.
With a fantastical yet intriguing story as the scene, we have this three-way collaboration piece to provide the soundtrack. Highly respected French artist Flint Glass has teamed up with lesser known, closely related German acts Polarlicht 4.1 and Transistor to offer 45 minutes of ice-cold atmospheres and dark archaeological beats.
Like the new artwork, the music is multi-layered and complex. Skilfully woven layers of dark electronics and samples evoke a quiet, eerie atmosphere, haunted with menacing tension.
