The tape edition of MATTER includes an ambient version of the entire album. It is on the b-side of the cassette and added as one seamless track to the digital album. MATTER (Ambient Version) allows you to enjoy the ambient and noise parts from the five original tracks without the beats but with some additional field recordings and previously unused voice recordings on the title track.
"The album is captivating and vulnerable, powerful and strong, just like the two people I have gotten to know over the years that created it. It is a personal listen that most certainly lends itself to the listener's interpretation, and in my case experiencing human connection through sound. MATTER does not simply pick up where their last album dents left off. It is an entire universe in and of itself. Certainly the ebbing and flowing, the delicate tones on tones, the grand melodic chaos remain in tact. With that, a sense of playfulness underlies these five songs… This may not be an entirely new facet of their music, however a sense of childlike wonder is woven into the aural fabric of the album. This feels more intentional than with theclosing's past work and seems to be a natural progression. In addition to said sense of wonder, these songs also feel organic and rooted deeply in the earth while reaching for the stars. This is not an easy accomplishment when it comes to experimental electronic music. theclosing pull it off with ease. Abstract yet purposeful, conveying both the light and the darkness, languid and also bursting with intensity…" - Michael J Collins / FilthyBroke Recordings
