I love this album because every single note and moment of silence is profound... perfection, and surprising, because I did not expect it to have the impact it had. This is something I haven't experienced listening to other minimalist classical compositions before. This album is quite literally teaching me how to listen and experience music, time and space differently. Gerrit Wessendorf
