Lived In, by Pacific Northwest-based artist Gabriel Celestino Higgins, is a densely meditative work that initially seems concerned with drones, but which upon further investigation slowly reveals layers of submerged harmonies throughout a landscape of curiously degraded sound.
Delicately strummed guitar notes supply an almost imperceptible emotional momentum to the music that begins to create an interesting tension within the listener. There's an almost palpable sense of one's self inhabiting a sacred space once removed, as if this is music you're experiencing from just outside of a cloister, or across town from church bells sounding at dawn.

Purely brilliant ambiant music. It is light in tone, and passes very well as background music, but if one decides to give it a thorough listening, they will discover rich compositions and details. Thibaut Devigne
