Finally ordered the six Beyond Sensory Experience albums because I got the impression there is something missing in the program here on DAR. Turned out that I was right -- concerning most of the albums.
BSE is a project of K. Meizter (who has also released some solo CDs, I -- shame on me -- haven't recognized till now as well) and J. Aneheim alias Drakh(hon) also performing together with Nordvargr in Mz.412, who seemes to have played a bigger part in the 2008 album No Lights in Our Eyes.
The only BSE album I didn't take into the program was The Dull Routine of Existence as the clipping clicks appear most unnerving fo me (and for a radio editor who's daily blues consists partly of clipping cd rips due to hot mastering or simply poorly mastered mp3s sent to me it's far above sensory tolerance).
The two other albums from the later CMI phase are nicely done in my ears, pretty much like the first three: notable are the sometimes rather minimal dark ambient soundscapes that are far from becoming boring, which is an art not many projects show to the extend BSE does -- with the exception of The Dull Routine of Existence, of course. Maybe the artists deliberately wanted to produce a boring album to see if someone does notice it at all -- or maybe I simply wasn't able to discover the excitement in boredom. At least nobody can blame the album for missing its theme.
Whoever want's to carefully take a closer look at the project, I recommend to start with Ratan, which I like the most. There exists a remix album Korrelations I abstained from ordering as well as the collaboration albums. Forgive me my ignorance -- if you find these most important, please add a comment here.
Vol. 4 will be reserved for C3S artists. Estimated release not before 2016.
From the 30 projects that have expressed their interest, twelve have actually managed to register a user account till 30th of June (the deadline) and got access to the restricted forum area where we will brew the comp. (If I forgot one, please send me a message!). The projects are:
