Reflection follows in the lineage of Brian Eno's long-running collection of 'Ambient' recordings that started with his 1973 collaboration with Robert Fripp, (No Pussyfooting) and 1975's Discreet Music.

Consisting entirely of one long form composition, Reflection mirrors perfectly Brian Eno's idea that 'Ambient' music is a term "to distinguish it from pieces of music that have fixed duration and rhythmically connected, locked together elements".

Reflection promises to be a much-needed catharsis at the start of a brand new year. – Press Release

“Eno approaches it less like an capital-A Artist, exerting his will and ego on the music, and more like a scientist conducting an experiment. He establishes a set of rules, puts a few variables into motion and then logs the results. Reflection opens with a brief melodic figure and slowly evolves from there over the course of one 54-minute piece. It’s not unlike the opening notes of Music for Airport’s “1/1,” with Robert Wyatt’s piano replaced by what might be a xylophone resonating from underwater. Each note acts like a pebble dropped into a pond, sending out ever widening ripples that slowly decay, but not before certain tones linger and swell until they more closely resemble drones. Listen closer and certain small frequencies emerge and flutter higher like down feathers in a draft.” – Pitchfork
