Genre - Dark Ambient
‘Reflections From the Time of Opening’ contains a selected collection of the very earliest material by raison d’être, now finally available on Cold Meat Industry. The album shows the first phases in the development of raison d’être and should rather be seen as a documentation album of that time more than a conceptual album. ‘Reflections From the Time of Opening’ sounds quite different from later and established raison d’être sound, but that makes it not less enjoyable. Also included on the disc are the compilation tracks from ‘The Absolute Supper’ (Cold Meat Industry) and Funeral Songs’ (Crowd Control Activities) and re-mixes of the two remaining tracks from the first raison d’être CD ‘Prospectus I’ (track re-mixes of ‘Prospectus I’ can also be found on Collective Archives’ and ‘Lost Fragments’).
A monumental documentation of 77 minutes, of what has become one of todays most talented, and respected dark-ambient artists.
