      Hypnosphere is yet another addition to the burgeoning ranks of
      the numerous devotees of the "Berliner Schule". This mode of
      expression arose quietly during the 1970's, fostered equally by
      technological advancements, dissent with the status quo and
      the spirit of experimentation. Nowadays, spacemusicians take
      their cues more from the mood enhancing qualities of the music
      than from its political content.

      Joining forces in Hypnosphere are Lambert Ringlage,
      specializing in crisp interlocked arpeggiations anchoring
      beneath glittering elastic melodies, who is contrasted by
      Wolfgang Barkowski, known elsewhere as Alien Nature, creator
      of Dark Ambient soundworlds. Together they have realized
      WITHIN THE WHIRL, an album rooted to the traditions of classic
      Spacemusic with its sights set on the limitless boundaries of
      improvisatory textural explorations.

      Each of the five tracks present the composers complex motivic
      unity. Opening with swirling, undefined forms in space, each
      piece begins with a quiet nightmare painted in stormcloud
      purple and gray. The welcome entrance of tones pulsing and
      echoing out of these gloomy projections builds to a climax of
      dynamics, instrumentation and tension before reversing itself
      and unwinding back towards a placid conclusion. On two of the
      tracks, if not the emotional plane then at least the energy level
      rises with the added intensity of certain drum elements; however

      Listening to Hypnosphere is a satisfying experience both for
      those steeped in the nostalgic remembrances of the Golden Age
      of Spacemusic as well as those who seek that which is new in
      the world of Post-"Kosmische Musik".
