The debut Roedelius album is an excellent showcase of the producer’s talents in producing exquisite instrumental music for reflection. Though these tracks often stray from beatless space music (the opener “Am Rockzipfel” flits back and forth between electronic hard rock and space), the musical structures employed certainly suggest ambience, from the classical melodies of the title track to the gaseous atmosphere of “Glaubersalz.”
