G.S. Sultan is the alias of Los Angeles based Roy Werner. 'Music For a Living Water' continues his practice of creating custom software written in max/msp to articulate a conversation between composer and computer; a quasi-generative digital architecture built in fragile mosaic of MIDI, acapella vocalist theatrics, and virtual synthesizers, gesturing at some theoretical sound-sculpture of music for abstracted meditation. Using a decidedly minimal sound pallette for this body of work, Werner writes a love-letter to liquid, building fluid soundscapes intended for 'divided listening'; a virtual garden for contemplative walk.

My only complaint with this album is that most of the songs sound like they didn't download properly. If you put this on a disc, be warned: a lot of songs will sound like they're skipping, but they're not. Sharlow

Before I was introduced to this album, I always had a hard time wrapping my head around subjects like Alzheimer's and dementia. I knew they were bad, but I couldn't truly comprehend how painful they were. This album describes it in such beauty and accuracy that it made me feel such strong emotions I didn't think I could ever get through music alone. It is the most painful thing I've ever listened to, and it is absolutely creative genius. The Caretaker deserves all my praise. zettazest
