"Lapses by Pausal is the first proper ambient release to come from Barge Recordings. These twelve gorgeous works of composed drone were crafted primarily from guitar, piano, violin, old classical vinyl and field recordings, all processed and played through various effects. Each song is like a specific place, highly personal, in which we're invited to visit and wander through. This is the core of their music, as you'll hear in tracks such as 'One Watery Lens' or 'With Seashell' -- where we can disappear in the essence of these recordings. Over time, organic yet precise details of the pieces emerge, revealing themselves more and more each listen. A certain attribute to the strength of Lapses is the slow dissolving of time itself. Pausal's compositions achieve the perfect balance of minimalism and drone to do just this. Another is their influence from classical music. Although a deliberate creative process through the application of found vinyl recordings, the sampling is quite functional, giving the pieces harmonic momentum and a unity to the full listen. This gift of retaining a certain musical framework and allowing the repetition of drone to run its natural course is something Pausal has perfected -- both as a recorded and live act."
