Hemisphere - Attachment X. 2002 Germany

The band calls this "a psychedelic deep ambient soundtrack". I personally don't hear any psychedelic, and not much deep. This is a pretty typical modern day ambient styled electronic album. Layers of synthesizers create a mood, that eventually transition into something more rhythmic, and then back for more atmosphere - and then more beats... et cetera. It dutifully follows directions from the Electronic Cookbook.

One piece worth calling out is 'Point Four'.  It's an inventive track that creatively uses voice, and adds a bit of kick with electric guitar. An instrument that is almost entirely absent from this release otherwise. This track is like a modern take on Edgar Froese's Macula Transfer.
