CD Reviews

Freezing cold ambience
Neil Kerr | Hastings, NE United States | 10/10/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'd heard several tracks from Octagon on various Hearts of Space programs, and had to get it. The music surrounds and envelops the listener, but remains very cold and distant. Several tracks follow the same mold - a series of chords that is repeated, and at each repetition you hear new electronic sounds, building and building throughout the piece, then fading out at track's end. I like it, but it makes some of the music a little predictable. Frozen East, Ashes, and Beacon are standouts. The rest of the CD holds up as well, but I wonder if this could have been distilled to 1 CD. It's still worth it.As you listen, your mind will conjure up images of bright sun and cold, cold ice. It's gorgeous music, but it is dangerously chilly."
Droning Ambient Soundscapes
Rusty Hodge | San Francisco, CA USA | 08/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dilate is real ambient- droning soundscapes, very popular on's Drone Zone abmient stream. Similar to Tulu + Nick Parkin, Tuu, the early Instinct Ambient series, Harold Budd (when he's not talking!) or early Eno Ambient."
