Nick Holland I fell in love with Fothem immediately when I found it on youtube a while back, and it took me a while to warm up to the other two pieces, but when they clicked it brought a moment of clarity like no other. A master class in dissonance and fragmented ideas, Mick Barr proves again that his sound is entirely inimitable and that every minute detail of everything he plays has been planned from the very start, with utmost proficiency and refined concepts. hearing Wethantheld finally click was amazing Favorite track: Wethantheld (Ocrilim).

Giles More Mick Barr/Ocrilim is always a pleasure, but hearing it played as both modern chamber music and guitar versions is really fascinating. I love what ACME & Judith Berkson brought out of these pieces! Favorite track: Lordlore (ACME).

mandymoorehal Great demonstration of how well Mick Barr's music translates to different voicing. High energy and dense but very entertaining as well. Favorite track: Lordlore (Ocrilim).

WETHANTHELD Ground vanished, hollow like sky Old as in life old as in life old as in life Old as life The first likeness bright In looking at whats left of life Night that shines is the blessing to be Like planets that vanish with dust A promise to be engulfed by The invitingly infinite Presents itself Though problems align Though problems align Yet a brain bounces its Convincing vibration Although, although Cherished the sound perished Voiced through light Shining prevents itself, itself Likeness of you Though you are not actual The presence follower God is not blessed By the fragments of bone The clouds have ceased their Constant migration All around the light of placement Reflects not the distant stars The bones are hallowed smoke The blood tilts the axis Torn in space and time by weapons Of the once thought thoughtless life of earth Every human life form From every single alternate dimension Has been placed into This solitary universe Quickened impulsive light, this turn around Like that of a lifeless statue has not its Own judgement To cast its fallen glance On false deities And restructured biological lifeforms As changed, as adapted, As continued
