Quotes from some album's reviews:

"The Home Normal label is generally known for its beauty, not its darkness, and even in this shadowed moment, it turns its eyes to the sun."

A CLOSER LISTEN (USA)


"C’est ainsi qu’avec des composantes a priori déshumanisées, Hawgood et Giulio Aldinucci parviennent à insuffler chaleur et réconfort, à concocter de longues pièces dans lesquelles l’auditeur prend plaisir à se lover. Classique de ce registre musical, ce travail sur la durée trouve ici sa pleine justification, non pas dans une logique tourbillonnante ou vertigineuse, mais plutôt dans une perspective enveloppante, comme si les compositions nous recouvraient progressivement de couches ouatées. "

EtherREAL (F)


"Una vibrante deriva sensoriale."

SOWHAT (I)


"The album highights dark, immersive sonic landscapes. The minimal arrangement of electronics and field recordings makes each piece chaotic and calm at the same time. Synth textures and patterns shine through the shadow builded up by long, hazy drone."

Cánh đồng âm nhạc (VN)


"La ricerca sonora di Ian Hawgood e Giulio Aldinucci si fonda su frammenti field recording, impulsi elettrici e alternativi segmenti organici. Elementi sonori eterogenei e interagenti tra loro. Una volta assemblati con cura, emerge uno scenario ambient fragile e gelido, terzo rispetto le consuete dimensioni spaziotemporali."

SOUTERRAINE (I)


"Ciascuno dei brani segue una propria graduale evoluzione, esaustiva di uno spazio incontaminato, sonoro e percettivo, del quale il bianco e nero dell’immagine di copertina raffigurante lo scoglio di Hvítserkur – non a caso rivolto all’estremo nord e scolpito dal vento –  rispecchia fedelmente l’orizzonte di sconfinata purezza e serena malinconia contemplativa."
