This is the fourth album by Koss -- the experimental sound project of Kuniyuki Takahashi. Kuniyuki is well-known as a deep house producer who has released on labels such as Spiritual Life, 2000 Black, Lifeline and his home Mule Musiq. His releases have been supported by F. Kevorkian, Joe Claussell, Larry Heard, David Mancuso, Luciano, Minilogue and Carsten Nicolai. After the splendid Four Worlds Converge As One (MULE 010CD), Koss returns with this beautiful ambient album. The album kicks off with the floating ambient song "Dream," and goes deeper with "Ocean Wave," which features a recorded wave sound mixed with dark, slow house with the pulse of a beating heart. More introspective ambient follows with "Jumoku," "Ancient Rain," and "Memory Mapping." Koss expresses his thoughts about the ambient music of the past and present on "1978to2008." The album finishes with the illusory, classical sound of "Beauty," "Odyssey," and "Dream," which features an Oriental harp sound. These are very still, gauzy, ambient creations that will lull you into a preternatural dream-state.
