Format: Audio CD
"Horizontal Structures" consists of four long ambient instrumental acoustic tracks made by three techno artists. But it's not techno. It has similarities with jazz ("On the Corner" Miles and "Ascension" Coltrane), so-called Krautrock (Neu! and Tangerine Dream), but there are also shadows of the work of more contemporary musicians (early Blue Nile, The Orb, Durutti Column and Eric Serra, not to mention Moritz Von Oswald's own Basic Channel as well, of course). If you like at least some of the aforementioned artists then you should give this a go.

It's probably not going to grab you on first listen, but repeated listening reveals a wealth of ideas - most of them way back, deep in the mix (and not to detract from the musicians, but a lot of this is about the mix). It's perhaps more accessible then the first MvO Trio LP ("Vertical Ascent") - this may have something to do with the presence of guitar this time around - and perhaps moodier-sounding too. This must be what rainy Tuesday afternoons in Berlin sound like.

It's reassuring to know that genuinely experimental and new forms of music are still being made in the 21st century. Quite possibly a future classic.

Format: Audio CD
THIS ALBUM IS NOT DUB-TECHNO or TECHNO IN ANY FORM!...I tried getting into this album as much as I could, as I enjoy the individual artist who form this group - but could not!. The problem I found with this album, is that the freestyle rhythms, abstract, and sound sonics don't form into much or actually go anywhere. Tracks just seem to go from one rhythm(less) free-form sound, then blend to the next sound, all sounding rather too loose without any real emphases on direction. Tracks just flow along building to nothing. Even the odd recognizable rhythms used here and there never really create a middle or finishing climax!. The use of abstract and mainly freestyle form using minimal rhythm with both live and electronic instruments, inc obscure sounds, do start to become a bit long ended.This is mainly due to tracks staying and sounding rather flat with its samey pace and never creating any real development or structure within each tracks framework. This happens throughout most of the album. It seems like 3 artist got together, jammed without any real direction or real idea of what to write, and ended with this as the result!...Experimental without form !
