Filigrane Split-Single des CONTRASTATE Mitglieds (der summende Drones & subliminale Harmonien mit einer Reihe von feinen Natur field recordings verbindet), und BAND OF PAIN (ruhige Synths werden behutsam bearbeitet) auf weissem Vinyl.

"A split single release on white vinyl, limited to 250, with black and white artwork printed on 120 gram tracing paper from these two well known and respected projects. This is a cinematic and inspiring musical journey which combines beautiful ambience interspersed with haunting atmospheres with each artist creating a distinctive, yet complimentary, electro-acoustic soundscape."

"This little beast I played at least ten times before even starting to think about the review. Was it that great? Well, no, not because of that, but rather the format of a 7" with 'difficult' music is hard to capture. Both SRMeixner and Band Of Pain are known for a long time inside the world of experimental music. On side A we fin Meixner, former member of Contrastate, with a piece that involves sea washes and processed bird/insect/frog sounds, along with sparse music (piano? guitar?), heavily layered. Quite an intimate piece of music.
Steve Pittis, also known as Band Of Pain, on the other side, has a likewise intimate piece of music. Sparse, drone like sounds and tape/vinyl-manipulation interjecting the music. Quite a musique concrete like piece, one that we haven't seen him doing before. More peaceful than before. For both of these pieces goes, that they are too short to give a solid opinion about, and both cry for more. Great, but way too short." [FdW / Vital Weekly]
