Justin I love the low, subliminal rhythms that come up once in a while.

Sweven Altus music has been a constant companion and inspiration to me - with albums like Komorebi, Winter Embrace II and Innerspace, containing compositions I could dwell in endlessly. Their meditative radiance is all immersive. ''Innerspace Outermind'' has been my undisputed ringtone and alarm for years now. There is nothing more pleasant than hearing such symphony appear when somebody calls. To be awoken by this summons an energy that paints and colours ones whole journey through the day. Favorite track: Innerspace Outermind.

Stephen Ralph Probably the best ambient track I'll ever hear. So powerful yet with beautiful harmonies. Really gives my 5.1 cinema system a workout and always gives me goose bumps. This needs to be heard in an IMAX cinema as an integral part of a SciFi movie. I see a spacecraft in peril; the crew frantically evacuating as the ship gradually breaks up and explodes. Just needs this track to illustrate the frantic sequence unfolding. Favorite track: Innerspace Outermind.

Bradford Ross-MacLeod There is no music quite like Altus music. He pulls amazing sounds out of the ether and breathes such vivid life into them. This is a stellar release from him and one that I would say is essential if you like his music. Favorite track: Vast Yet Insignificant.

Review at Hypnagogue

[...] To me, Altus is one of the top purveyors of quiet, reflective music working today. Mike Carss has an amazing ability to pull strong feelings from you without rippling the surface. His music just eases itself into your ears, heads for your soul, finds that part of you that’s resonating with his ambient reflections, and works on that harmony. It’s effortless—all you have to do is listen. Innerspace is yet another superb, repeat-ready release from one of my personal favorite artists. Get this, and resonate.

Review at Sonic Immersion

[...] the six soundscapes—I regard them as phases—making up the 70+ minute journey within are a lovely drifting, smooth evolving and calming affair tantalizing the senses from start for finish. Ethereal, serene glistening and uplifting as well as sombre currents pass by in the continuous textural worlds of "Innerspace". It glides onward effortless to distant horizons beyond without demanding the listener’s attention, finding a compelling conclusion in the 21-minute velvet cosmic expanse "Innerspace Outermind".
