3 stars "Hingus" ( "Breath") is debut solo album by Estonian composer and electronic musician. Recorded using first synthesizers and some unique electronic devices, constructed by his friend Härmo Härm.

Music there is interesting example of early analog electronics( think about Klaus Schulze). Before recording this album, Sven played in school band Mess (quite popular in Estonia in its time). But his interest to composing and advanced electronic music bring him to solo recordings.

Instrumental compositions on this album sound as spacey ambient, almost rhythm less, but with some melodic tunes you can hear. Early Sven interest to Buddhism is influenced music in way of meditative atmosphere of this recording as well. Sound itself is vintage, but the album was recorded in 1981, and in fact is one of very first electronic music works in former SU.

Whenever this album is possibly mostly of electronic music researchers interest, music sounds surprisingly attractive even for unprepared listener. Very rare release, though. Happily was re-released on CD in 2000, but on Russian label Boheme music only ( anyway, it means you can get it if you will try hard).

About 3,5.
