When Freezing Air Stings Like Ice I Shall Breathe Again

(Streamline) Used CD $8.00

This very quiet album from the mid ’90s “often borders on the imperceptible with silence as structural consideration,” explains Resonance. “Imperceptibility goes hand in hand with intangibility and sounds having very few referential angles. There’s a whole lot of mystery here. A half-light, a veil over a doorway to another world. Absolutely beautiful.”
