rikm A study in beauty and grace, Purl's "Form is Emptiness" is organic ambience at its very best.

A truly beautiful listening experience.

Peija Simply, the squirrel.

Seriously, I bought the album for the sake of that, although the music is also sublime.

Kosmische Gans Probably my favourite of Ludvig's stuff. Embraces you in a wash of luminous warmth. Perfect for letting yourself drift. Looking forward to the remixes. Favorite track: Under Mjuka Vatten.

The music of Purl always emerges between the ephemeral and the eternal and 'Form Is Emptiness', his first work for Archives, is the perfect example. With each sound in its right place, but turning impulsively, as if was alive and conscious. Drawing breathtaking soundscapes with immersive vibes and chilling emerging pad sounds, slowly blossoming into colorful and vibrant sonic vistas.
