      In the land of drones Pete Namlook is royalty. His murmuring
      soundscapes elicit a range of reactions, none of which is wrong.
      MUSIC FOR URBAN MEDITATION II (79'10") moves at the pace
      of thought. Without the intrusion of drums and vocals (or even
      melody or harmony) to provide any narrative or direction, the
      listener is left on their own to find meaning in this work.
      Namlook's reference-less sounds throb, whir and vibrate
      together in layers then alone in space. His synthesizers pour out
      roaring streams of electronic frequencies, then too... quietly
      purring modulations. There is no beginning, middle or end to
      this CD - just the constant movement of sound. The overall effect
      can be isolating, time stretching, or a slowing of the mind to a
      point before sleep. This is not music to disappear in. Namlook's
      realizations create a sonic space within which to truly meet one's
      self.
