Musictrade opened year 2007 with this ambient compilation featuring a full house of Musictrade artists. There is a strong edge of experimental in the album, with elements of classical drone ambient combining to innovative use of field recordings and found sound material.
Electroteque's Collective Consciousness is a musical insight into various voices and ideas present in today's collective consciousness, implemented in a relaxed and spacious fashion charasteristic to this Sydney based artist. 'Birds' by Doc [Finland] and Frags [Sweden] is an ambient adventure into the music contained in birdsong, based on Doc's countryside field recordings from summer 2006 and Frags's ambient groove. Frags also contributes another track 'Eleventh of Eleventh', a calm and soothing meditative ambient piece. Softspace from England takes the listener to his imaginative visual soundworlds with two tracks. Moon's Halo is reminiscent of floating ice crystals in the upper atmosphere while Hollow Lands brings to mind sci-fi like scenes of Earth in a distant future. KraftiM from Holland contributes two tracks as well: Awl I Can Say is an introspective, meditation-like study of the hidden depths of a single sung vocal, and Danik is a study of artist's daughter's humming combined to wave material provided by Electrotque. The album closes with cinematic and capturing 'Helsinki' by the Scottish Musictrade artist Unknown Forces, based on his field recordings from a recent concert trip to Helsinki.
