AllMusic Review by

Vidna Obmana (née Dirk Serries) recorded Revealed By Composed Nature in 1989 and 1990. It was his first vinyl album, intended as a sequel to his cassette releases. However, the pressing was of such poor quality that much of the emotional intent was lost. Serries digitally remastered the album and presents it here on CD. He also restored the original depth of emotions. Through a unique process, Serries creates synchronized loops through the internal sequences of the instruments. The shifting timbres and vast atmospheres convey feelings of loneliness and despair. There are no dark moments, but this is very somber and meditative minimalism. This CD will appeal to fans of Robert Rich, Alio Die, Jeff Greinke, and Rudy Adrian. It is an important disc for fans of electronic minimalism.
