kimzi_ziceta Life is my magic carpet ride and music is the breeze that carries me through time and space. This release by Zeitgeber is a beautiful reminder of the power of music. It is so connected to Nature and Source, I find myself dancing behind the veil. It reminds me of the home that came before this body-mind; a home that I will someday return again. Simply beautiful. Favorite track: Persistent Oscillations.

Lachlan R. Dale Hypnotic, immersive music that combines elements of various world traditions with trance-like electronic beats and washing sonic textures. Unique and highly enjoyable. Favorite track: Suprachiasmatic Nuclei (SCN).

Sal Pichireddu This album is among my personal Prog Top 10 of 2017. Original, hypnotic music with strong world influences (world in the literal sense - because there are influences from all over the world) and some enchanting melodies. Excellent musicianship! Favorite track: Phase Response Curve.

Zeitgeber's Heteronomy is an exploration of psychedelic, ambient, world and electronic music. You’ll hear hints of Balkan and African rhythms, washes of reverb-soaked textures, and instrumentation as eclectic as ‘caisa’ handpan, clarinet, didgeridoo, ‘sansula’ thumb piano, melodica, guitar and viola.

Conceptually the album is a homage to the hidden forces and environmental stimuli that regulate and modulate human behaviour and psychology - like a zeitgeber, a rhythmically occurring natural phenomenon which acts as a cue in the regulation of the body's circadian rhythms.

The implication is that we are less in control of our body and mind than like to think.

Heteronomy is a unique and engrossing listen that will please fans of Dawn Of Midi, Manu Delago’s Living Room, Portico Quartet, Estradasphere, and anyone interested in the fusion of music from across the globe.
