“At times this is more like a mindfulness album than a television score. As we hear electronic waves lapping against a digital beach in track five, ‘Ocean Chamber’, it’s hard not to imagine a calm, soothing voice guiding us through a set of meditative actions with a disturbing twist. “Bring your awareness to your chest. Notice as it rises and falls with your breath. And now, as you exhale, squeeze the life out of your helpless victim.”
This is an excellent score, one that doesn’t feel the need to simply enhance the subject, but to develop it in its own right; explorative as well as experimental.”
