doctsect Gorgeous flowing ethno-ambient and mystical found-sounds, with gentle-soft careful multi-faceted vox drifting in and out. I adore Alio Die, own almost all his work, and this ranks up there as one of his best. Favorite track: Dreaming tree.

Scott I've much enjoyed this album on CD since it first came out. I can actually feel the chill from the brisk mountain-top wind as I listen. It really takes me away. Favorite track: Across a splendid vista.

Glenn Wever Pure bliss. Deeply emotional and supportive. Alio Die's divine sound stirs a whole lot of stuff up in my soul. Sylvi Alli's voice is healing. This album helps me in dark moments and nurtures me when i need a rest. Nice artwork too.

Brian Bourassa Alio Die is a master of his craft, whose music is profoundly intrinsic, primordial, and tactile.

He often finds vocal collaborators that express the extremes of emotion, from beauty and bliss to the depth of anguish and yearning (two sides of the same coin).

Highly recommended as is most of his work.

Amidst the Circling Spires is a captivating electro-ambient journey into an interior space, weaving visions of strong emotional impact. Sylvi’s heavenly voice drifts within the highly processed acoustic sounds created by Alio Die: a hybrid between – sonorous soundscapes and acoustic mysticism. The treated tones are an essential magma – organic and animated – luring the listener in like an ancestral call or an ancient saga. The loops, played with carillon, kalimba, zither, different objects and field recordings, blend into finely-detailed layered and treated.

Sylvi’s voice is intense and moving, evanescent and precise – each song a mantra exploring a unique soundworld. Her vocals interact deeply with the melodies and atmosphere of Alio Die as they weave together like dark roots underground.

The ecstatic and ritualistic landscapes that these artists offer shine with a magic all their own – giving rise to a multiple array of meditations perfectly mixed with unique pathos and abstraction.
