Notes & Reviews:
Alexander Berne and his "Abandoned Orchestra" have returned with their third multi-CD set. Berne's latest finds him further refining and deepening a tonal vocabulary that has garnered him spots on critics' "Best of" lists and found him compared to striking artists from across multiple genres, including Kubrick, Cage, Schoenberg and Joyce.

Self Referentials Volumes 1 & 2 is another voyage headed by Alexander Berne and his Abandoned Orchestra. Pieces like Amphibiana are quite passive, allowing the listener to impart meaning to the trip through the flickering electronics, woodwind pedal tones, and barrage of background sounds that emerge and spend. Sonum Onscurum: Headphone Apparitions I is a melodic wonder.
