Are you familiar with the Wolf Müller & Cass release from earlier this year, The Sound of Glades? – “Baikal”, “Corona” And in response to your other comment – I love that Fennesz & Sakamoto album, as well as pretty much all Yagya.

I think I need to seek them out. And I definitely do not recall ever hearing an album by Robert Rich, so I’m looking for ‘Echo’ right now.
