Richard Gürtler Acoustic recordings from "Raag Drone Theory" sessions are finely melted with nicely detailed on-site recordings and beautifully floating electronic washes. On all 6 pieces we enjoy a very peaceful, serene and meditative textures, the overall feel is absolutely graceful and tranquil, this is a pure airy sonic journey to calm the mind. "Il Giardino Ermeneutico" CD comes in very nicely designed six-panel glossy digipak and photographs of Sara Luciani gently fit this unforgettable journey.

Brian Bourassa An organic, textural, mufti-layered tapestry of magical bliss. This album places you in the center of calm. allowing you to find yourself once again. The addition of synths that spiral about like strokes of a Van Gogh painting are a wonderful acompanymet. Favorite track: I Racconti Del Vento (I).

Christopher Ellis One of my favourite Alio Die albums his music has been described like ambient sounding hymns because they encapture a spitiual level of reality but in a very visual and intuitive narrative way.
When you hear his music it stays with you and produces a desire to hear more ......simple inspiring and beautiful ambient music.

The third collaboration with Zeit displays a wonderful and unique combination between acoustic sounds, field recordings and airy gentle electronic sounds.
The sonic result maintains the natural atmospheres of the original
acoustic recordings, done at the time of the Raag drone theory's sessions in Lunigiana, Italy at Chiostro dell’Annunziata and the Wood Sanctuary in August 2006.
Here the treatments enriche the mixture with a new sensible touch that subtly transports the listener towards an
enchanted and multi-dimensional place for relaxation.

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.
