(Twenty Hertz)

Like a dampened mantra coming from the abyss, Cheapmachines’ contribution to the ever better Twenty Hertz collection of drone assignments is able to stop listeners in their tracks, abruptly changing the light of life and modelling their vision around that very moment. The music is wonderfully effective at very low volume in complete silence, propagating like an intoxicating exhalation made of relinquishment to any corporeal necessity. The engrossing fusion of looping resonances and poised shimmering soundwaves is indifferent to any kind of emphasis; after less than 22 minutes the deep blue has definitively prevailed, bringing back the magic into the memory of stillness.
