"...Sitardrones evozieren buddhistische Untertne, Drhncluster schlagen die Stunden, die Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 wie eine Litanei aufzhlt: A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; eine Zeit zu suchen und eine Zeit zu verlieren; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. Omega ist selbst in sich wieder dreigeteilt und erfllt in der finalen von drei nahezu gleichen Viertelstunden den ganzen Raum mit pantheistischer Erhabenheit. Jackman nannte (im Interview mit Kevin Spencer) fr das,
was ihm vorschwebte, big slow shape in time, Kegelschnitte und die minimalistischen Lichtinstallationen von Dan Flavin. Khle,
symmetrische Struktur, warmer Klang, keine Psychologie, keine hhere Bedeutung. A piece of time, a time of peace." [Bad Alchemy]

Third part of this great ORGANUM comeback trilogy, more floating again, endless repetitions of the same sounds lead to an experience of timelessness... brilliant sounds & a highly contemplative effect...

"Collecting music for the sake of collecting is not something I am very keen. Music hearing for the sake of hearing music, that is what I like. There are a few artists whose new works I usually try to get, and Organum is one of them. Although I must admit, I sometimes (or perhaps more often than not) am clueless what it is about. If it's about something at all. The music by Organum is a mystery that comes in clusters. The cover of 'Omega' looks like 'Sanctus' and 'Amen', so no doubt there is a relation in the music, which comes to form in the use of a church organ like sound, some highly processed chime like sound and a deep drone of rusty metal in the background. Just as on 'Sanctus' and 'Amen' - and much true to the form of Organum mystery, there are three pieces here, which all sound quite similar - or perhaps they are similar? You can't tell, and that's probably the whole point. After some fifteen minutes, another track of fifteen minutes that sound similar, is that then also
similar? It's a question Organum asks himself, or rather, just raises for us to find an answer too. I am afraid I have no answer myself. I sit back and listen and wondering what this means, 'Omega', 'Sanctus' and 'Amen' - a holy trilogy? Better would be, perhaps, not to ponder too much about this and just enjoy that crazy genius Organum. I am long converted to his belief." (FdW / Vital Weekly)
