11'00 is a 7" EP released in January 2002. Ea, a Polish artist, delivers two dark ambient tracks of seven minutes each titled "11" and "00." Ambient or drone music is all the same, right? Wrong. What makes it worthy of anyone's attention is its power to tap into one's organism, to inhabit the listener. Ea's music masters this power. His soft drones have an organic feel. Gongs or bells, streaming water, aerial guitars, and field recordings (that acoustic-room feel) come together to form beautiful pieces, quiet but not fragile. The level of artistry found here reveals a surprising maturity in such a young artist.
