Composing Comfortable Void was “a real struggle for me”, said Daniel Segerstad in a 2012
interview, “the album changed shape two or maybe even three times. When I found the path,
and actually gave it the title Comfortable Void things started to fall into place. [...] The outcome
sounds nothing like I initially intended, and it's probably for the best”.
This Sync24 album is heavily inspired by the very moments when Segerstad was in “a state of
inner peace, when I find myself in my studio without distractions and it feels like I become one
with my equipment. And I finally managed to put words to that feeling, to me it's a Comfortable
Void.” Originally intended to be an uptempo album, Comfortable Void ended up being another
perfect ambient/psybient piece by one of Carbon Based Lifeforms two halves, where tracks
recall battle droids (“Nanites”), dreams set in a concrete maze (“Oomph”) and a whole range of
diverse ideas and concepts.
Named as one of the best electronic/ambient albums of the year by several online mags,
Sync24 sophomore full-length was released on CD in 2012, and has been out of print since,
hence here at Sidereal we thought it would be best not only giving it a new CD edition, but also
making it available on wax for the first time ever.
