AllMusic Review by

Taking an inspiration from the repetition in rituals, Distant Rituals is another in Meloche's series of long pieces originally designed for overnight radio transmission. There are multiple layers, all proceeding very slowly, with a three-note harmonic bass figure repeated throughout most of the CD. When the bass finally dissolves about three-quarters of the way through, the remaining melodic fragments slowly dissipate.
