      Dieter Ettlinger is an electronic musician exploring the deep space
      of the synthesizer. His fresh insight into the ubiquitous and
      transparent nature of digital sonic environments elevates his output
      above cliche, building on the work it is emulating rather than
      mimicking it. AMBIENT INTELLIGENCE (63'28") is an album of music with
      many strands; each part needing to be heard individually in the
      context of the greater composition to be fully comprehended. The
      album's three lengthy realizations are ruled by a compositional logic
      of layer upon layer of repeating diatonic triads and tetrads and
      seemingly neverending entrances and introductions of subdivided
      rhythms - each part with little identity outside the multitude of
      interconnected embedded pulsations. Ettlinger paces his work well.
      The pieces seem in constant transition. The simplistic rhythmic
      initiation of each track climbs with deliberation into the rigorous
      pace of a free-wheeling structure - the heated underpinnings of an
      anchoring bass and muscular pulse cooled by choirs of ethereal synth
      voices. With increasing levels of intricacy, building in volume and
      density, Ettlinger draws the listener into his world completely; held
      in a true "electronic moment" and experiencing his invisible realm of
      complex ideas. Ettlinger's trip to deep space is symbolic of the
      psychic journey inward and AMBIENT INTELLIGENCE is successful in its
      ability to transport. Yet so often do we humans look to music and art
      for that which we can not find within ourselves.
