AllMusic Review by

After being silent for six years, Michael Stearns returned with the full-length experimental ambient album Sorcerer in September of 2000. The album was inspired by spiritual writing from Carlos Castaneda, resulting in a dark, abstract world created by Stearns and Ron Sunsinger using environmental sounds, bowed metal, and acoustic instruments. The result: Sorcerer is a highly abstract piecing together of noises, absent of beats or melodies.
