      On his album GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM (62'03"), Off the Sky
      (aka Jason Corder) re-envisions Ambient Music into something
      more lineal. The focus is tighter, more intimate - and the music
      less ambiguous. The fractured form of this album uses delicate
      rhythmic interludes of weightless electronica to disengage the
      mind, but the songs do more than just float by on spacey
      imagery. Corder's imagination finds form in sound and the
      preternatural calm of his work lends itself well to productive
      daydreaming, better experiencing slow time or just chilling out.
      Many of the 12 tracks crossfade one into the next, providing a
      fluid listening session. While the arc of this album fluctuates
      somewhat noticeably, it is a pleasure to have this music call
      attention to itself here and there. Dense sub-sonic bass pulses
      periodically rattle the low end while elsewhere grainy electronic
      effects offer to reroute nerve impulses. Throughout this
      dreamlike aural excursion, the rhythms are so slow and cool,
      atmosphere so porous, textures so artfully interlaced, that
      repeated listening is rewarded with a deeper appreciation for the
      craft of this artist and his alternative vision of Ambient Music.
