Danica Swanson Tobias Hornberger, master of the immersive deep listening journey, is in top-notch form here. False Mirror is still greatly underrated - this is truly wondrous and soulful work, and should appeal to those who appreciate the lighter side of dark ambient. Slip on your headphones and delve deep within as you float adrift a sea of drones and enjoy this expansive, mystical, hypnotic masterpiece. Favorite track: The Subterranean Border.

False Mirror (Tobias Hornberger) crafts some dark, drone-based landscapes.

"Deeply absorbing, and cut through with mystery, these dark landscapes remind me of the visual works of 19th century symbolist painter Arnold Böcklin ... in fact, track 4 could be the perfect soundtrack to The Isle of the Dead. A rewarding listen for fans of darker ambient." APK

"Hornberger establishes an effective sonic affinity between elements of an older space music tradition and contemporary experimental ambient, while also tapping into the self-consciously spooky soundtrackism of late-period Type-geists like Deaf Center and Xela...." Alan Lockett - e/i magazine

"His debut CD Chronostatic Scenes is full of dark, primordial soup stuff of the sort that Robert Rich fans would do well to check out." Phil Derby - Electroambient Space
