Deeply transportive sound collage / concrete works from the long running Ora project helmed by Darren Tate and Andrew Chalk with the Time Out Of Mind LP. The piece collates odd sketches, unreleased bits and field-recordings, perfectly sequenced and segued by Chalk into a hypnogogic dream-sequence that drifts between deeply immersive electro-acoustic / drone passages, occasionally coming up for air with the soft tinkering of piano keys or lightly plucked acoustic strings. Far from a dumping ground for material not deemed worthy of release at the time, this one reflects on the formative years of the Ora project and showcases some of their early working practices in their more embryonic state that would later come to define them. A real trip! Recommended... (Mint / New).
