Lid Emba release #4, and #2 in the Terminal Muse series. My motto at the time was “Wake Up! Art Kills.” Absolutely nothing danceable, and often what sounds like loops aren’t and vice versa. Real-time execution was the preference, including a whole lotta flesh and blood drumming.

–Sean Moore


“Like Goya setting up a Tangerine Dream covers band.” 20jazzfunkgreats

“Pretentiousness aside, its pretty damn good and droney.“ Heaven is an Incubator

“Inventive and curious, kind of ‘let’s see what could have happened if Wendy Carlos wasn’t lost in soundtracks.’” Terrascope

“Ambient with extra frightnight. Sounds like snow crunching under your feet, accompanied by the sound of your labored breath.” Acid Ted

“Super cool electro with dash of post rock or even prog. All instrumental. All kick ass.” KZSU

“As strange as it is sophisticated, this is definitely a worthy exploration of the fields of experimental sound first investigated by the likes of Cluster, Eno, and This Heat.” One true Dead Angel

“Unlike the average modern day synthesizer artist who wants crystal clear sounds, Lid Emba seems to grovel in distortion and accidentals. Heavy and hard.” Babysue

“Not the sort of thing to play on a daily basis, but quite good for an all out ear cleansing experience.” Vital Weekly

“The tracks will only appeal to a very select few people because there are barely any elements of musicality in them. For most listeners, Blue will wear out its welcome within seconds; in fact, I'd be surprised to find someone who actually wants to hear it.” Terrascope
