Rather relaxing and trippy album from the German duo SOFTWARE. Their music is mostly inspired by the Berlin electronic school, especially TANGERINE DREAM and KLAUS SCHULZE.

"Chip Meditations Part I" makes the listener dive into an electronic journey inside the computer. The pieces are smoothly sequenced in order to create an hypnotic and robotic effect. For that, the sound is very similar to SCHULZE's "Audendity". The highlights here are the enchanting "Self Similarity Life" and the last ambient part of the album. "Julias-Dream" is a pun mixing PINK FLOYD's eponymous track and the sets of the mathematician Julia, which serves as the basis of the well-known fractal set of Mandelbrot, displayed on the cover.

I recommend this band to all fans of KLAUS SCHULZE, electronica and ambient music.
