AllMusic Review by

This highly innovative release is one of the first DVD-Audios specifically commissioned for the purpose of recording music and sound media on the format's cutting-edge digital Surround Sound. Some of the music world's most experimental and trend-setting composers add some fantastic pieces to the disc, from avant-garde filmmaker/vocalist/composer Meredith Monk to Bay Area electronica/sampling innovator Carl Stone to legendary John Cage compatriot Pauline Oliveros. The 13 musicians create conceptual soundscapes and collages aimed at stimulating the ear, the brain, and in some cases, the heart.
