Liquid Faith A really different superb collaboration from Alio Die and Parallel worlds. The album evokes thoughts of early historical visions mixed occasionally with abstract female voice patterns and obscure secret drones combined with Alio's usual hypnotic magic. It was one at first I thought I wouldn't like but ended up loving it. Alio die fans will not be let down. This is the first of 2 collabs between the two. The other "elusive metaphor" is just as good if not better. Another great work by a master. Favorite track: Electrostatic Forest.


In this first collaboration between Alio Die & Parallel Worlds, the unique sound achieved could be described as a hybrid sonic world, made out of bouncing electrons and air vibrations.
The modular machines of Parallel Worlds are merged with the acoustic instrumentation and drones of Alio Die, joined by the ethereal voice of the Polish vocalist/composer India Czajkowska, resulting in a surreal, yet down to earth, listening experience.
The compositions, being, at times, minimal and calm and, at other times, full of mystical darkness and microsound elements, take the listener into a place were mental and physical boundaries have no need to exist.

His music is a shadowy, cavernous, intensely detailed fusion of acoustical elements, step-and-repeat sample treatments, sparse, echoing percussion, and deep, atmospheric sound design, textural the music's vague, entropic formlessness.
