4 stars "As Seen Through Windows" is the second album of the Montreal based instrumental ensemble BELL ORCHESTRE. And it holds true to the local stage penchant for electroacoustic cinematic experimentation with melodic lines covered up by atonal slabs, electronics mixed with organic chamber-rock, post-jazz, and brass orchestrated neoclassic.

This album is full of inventive ideas and blends compositional, improvised, and textural music together in a very specific and imaginative soundscape. The production is top-notch punctuating every sonic aspect of the performance. BELL ORCHESTRE imbue each track with strangely beautiful surrealistic playfulness - and this is what makes their second album so enjoyable for a open minded listener.

This is rewarding and definitely recommended work for those willing to discover new deviant forms and contents of modern instrumental music.
