There’s a positive little review of The Petrified Forest in this week’s edition of Vital (issue 631), which had this to say:
Brian Lavelle recently surprised us [with] ‘Supernaturalist’, and the two pieces here were recorded just before that and show the best side of his: manipulating field recordings and very much altering them into microscopic detailed pieces of ambient drones. Slowly changing patterns of what seems to be rain fall, deep bass sounds in ‘The Wood Turned Dark And Silent’ and more synthetic in ‘This Twisting Glade’, which sounds like a church organ being dissected. Very nice. (FdW)
Thank you Frans!
