#Listening to The Visitor, by Jim O’Rourke

The Visitor is a masterpiece of arranging. Each sound has its place, and every element shifts in and out of presence so discreetly that you never notice the transitions. Despite requiring a reported 200 tracks to realise, the mix is uncluttered and the edits quite invisible; each event furthers the sonic narrative, then disappears when its job is done.
