While lacking the dub style of Mick Harris's other solo project Scorn, Lull is
still an ambient work of art. Treading the same path as other atonal ambient
composers "Continue" is mastered as a single track, 62 minutes in length.
However that is where the comparison ends. Instead of gift wrapping the album
with copious liner notes and technical information, the tray card on this
release in blank save for the band, album title, artists, and sparse label
information. This blank canvas allows us as the listener to paint the portrait
of the music within our own minds instead of trying to interpret the cover art.
I think that it is this simplicity that makes this album stand out from other
similar work of ambience. By allowing us to interpret the composition rather
than a third party we can derive whatever message means the most to us. Quite
a bold move on the part of Mr. Harris, but then again Mick hasn't really ever
been concerned with other peoples interpretations of his music.
Lull is: Mick Harris
