This extraordinary album contains the results of five years' worth of research into new musical instruments and interfaces. Titled Meta Gesture Music: Embodied Interaction, New Instruments And Sonic Immersion, the anthology features musicians who crossed paths during Meta Gesture Music, a research project which ran between 2012–17 at London’s Goldsmiths College in order to explore new tools and techniques for experimental music making, from live computer coding to using bike lights and solar panels as instruments.
The compilation contains new tracks by Goldsmiths professor of media computing Atau Tanaka, both solo and in duet with composer/pianist Sarah Nicolls, as well as Tom Richards performing on his Mini-Oramics set up, Kaffe Matthews making music with sharks in the sea, xname amplifying electromagnetic fields, Laetitia Sonami performing on her patented Spring Spyre, plus Leafcutter John, Renick Bell & Steph Horak, Dane Law, and Ewa Justka.

"How Not To Disappear (Completely)" by Pepo Galán is a incredibly relaxing, atmospheric, melancholic, and peaceful ambient music. Some of the best ambient can be found on Rohs! records and it's divisions, and this is another example to that claim. The track "Growing Seed" is my personal favorite by everything is just flawless. This reminds me of daydreams I've had over many summer nights, longing for a special moment that always on the horizon. Beautiful stuff!
