Re-released digitally on Bandcamp in December 2014

"What a delicately striking album this is. Part dark electronic, part soundtrack music, ad libitum all blends together into a wonderful tapestry of sonic imagery. From deep reverberating piano to lush atmospheric textures to cool electronic grooves, each element is perfectly placed"

"What a delicately striking album this is. Part dark electronic, part soundtrack music, ad libitum all blends together into a wonderful tapestry of sonic imagery.
From deep reverberating piano to lush atmospheric textures to cool electronic grooves, each element is perfectly placed.
Hipnoide starts with the aforementioned piano, melancholy and lovely in a Harold Budd sort of way, simply gorgeous.
Tympani is used to great effect in Intention, enhanced by various synthetic touches, strings here, percussion there.
The quiet understated mood continues with Devoción, dominated by piano, strings, and something resembling harpsichord.
It is more orchestral than electronic, and quite moving. Deceptive beauty is a soft ambient piece, with a slowly breathing organic drone as its centerpiece; its title could serve as a two-word review for ad libitum in its entirety.
Oniria is another piano-infused number, perhaps the most delicate piece yet, intoxicating.
Oppio opts for sad tones that resemble oboe or perhaps bassoon.
Just when it seems the album has set a definitive path in the direction of all things quiet and reflective, two of the last three
tracks challenge that just a bit. Luminae Psicoactive leaves me grasping for words to describe exactly its style and sound.
Though it sounds more acoustic than electronic, it reminds me of the lush textures of the Cocteau Twins.
The title track adds tribal drums and occasional chants, and then the disc closes with perhaps my favorite, Lúdico.
Ad libitum is a breathtakingly beautiful and complete packag" Electroa-mbientSpace
