"These tracks build slowly and develop wonderfully. This disc is far more accessible than anything by Oval, and the mix he did even sounds more like conventional music. Also, there is an indescribable feeling throughout the album. It is perfect for laying about the bed on a sunny (or rainy) saturday morning. The following review is stolen from forcedexposure (I am lazy): "Microstoria sent tracks to the following artists (C. Schultz & Hajsch, Ui, Violent Onsen Geisha, Mouse On Mars, FX Randomiz, Oval, Stereolab, Jim O'Rourke, Christoph Heemann, Christophe Carles & Nicolas Collins) for a collaborative track. The idea of the project was an extension of the improvisations of microstoria. A collaboration between two improvisers as opposed to a remix. Bands were to augment the tracks they were sent by playing off of, or with the tracks. Microstoria improvise with machines and then edit to complete a track. They create a variety of tones and then compose in the editing process. They wanted to extend this notion by having their edits further reprised by an additional improvisation and edit. They selected many of the musicians with the thoughts that their music would be different enough to make a significant change to the tone and timbre of Microstoria's music. The results are not only a very interesting listen but exciting in the merging of technical and human elements.""
