Berkdrums A labour of love...is what comes to mind each time I listen to this entire album. Although it’s a double album, it surprises me with each spin that it feels to me as if it’s a single album, it’s thát amazingly good... ambient at its finest, created with passion and feel, absolute must-have....

rikm Mysterious and enigmatic, Means of Knowing is another fantastic release from the Archive label. There's a casually drifting beauty on display here, moments of wonder and beauty. Well worth checking out...

about

"Touch is a reciprocal action, a gesture of exchange with the world…walking is not the action by which one arrives at knowledge; it is itself the means of knowing."

"Means of Knowing" is an exchange with the world, an effort to know it and ourselves more deeply. Like a long walk on a favorite path and the introspection and observation that such a journey inspires, it is an album full of constantly evolving interplay between natural and imagined sound sources. Tactile sounds from the physical world combine with textured, processed synthesis to evoke the depth of experience available to us every day.
