The premise for this release is that the quiet, unstructured pops, clicks, bass moans and minimal atmospheric sounds capture the essence of true ambient noise – that is, the random, unsequenced machine and urban sounds that most people filter our from their interactions with the world.

Delicate and seemingly fractured, Occur will be followed within the year by a highly repetitive analog, Stil. – heath k. highnight
