Review by AUTOreverse:
The best words to describe this tape by C. Reider are AMBIENT ELECTRONIC MUSIC. And like all other ambient music that I listen to, the best quality it can have for me is that it can either be participatory or slip off into the background. Some of the time notice is paid to what is going on, while most of the time you just keep writing a letter or reading a book or cleaning your room. You don't have to be active unless you choose to be. This tape is like that. There were sections of this tape that caught my attention like light to a moth. Then there would be minutes of daydreaming about the sound of a neighbor mowing in the distance and how nice the breeze feels coming into my window against my face. For this kind of music, that is the perfect quality to have. This tape is great at night, when the world is still, the room lacks light, your mind is busy with thoughts of what came in the day, focus comes into your eyes and then focus leaves.
