Steve Hauschildt may be best known for his role in the Emeralds trio of ambient explorers, but with the release of his new solo endeavor, Tragedy & Geometry (artwork above, read our glowing review here), earlier this week, he has begun to establish himself as a fine producer of celestial sonics in his own right. Here we have album standout “Already Replaced,” a twisting excursion that revolves around a twinkling arpeggio and lush, almost horn-like, pads. Layers of glistening delay and reverb coat the nostalgic piece in a vast New Age sheen, through which only the occasional melodic flairs peak through. (via Altered Zones)
