"'Here and Above' considers music as a transcendental experience. Its layers of patterned tones, buried signals, shifting drones and static recall the way some music makes you want to switch off the light, put on your headphones and drift inward, and how it also makes you reach out your arms and take flight. But the album is infected with something that confuses this movement. The steady rumble of traffic outside forced Michael Rodgers to record wearing headphones. His recorder had to run off batteries to reduce radio interference. And the relative isolation of the basement studio where he mastered Here and Above was not immune to the constant hiss of air vents and computer fans. Ultimately the two tracks, about 26 minutes each, realize there is no escape."
