“There were moments of The Clearing when my memories drifted toward Philip Glass and Michael Nyman, spiritual jazz and soundtrack music, Radiohead’s “Amnesiac,” Ryuichi Sakamoto’s collaborations with Fennesz and Alva Noto. The Clearing is a study in contrast—majestic and radiant one moment, ominous and weary the next. There’s a feeling of presence and possibility throughout, as Grimes’s sonorous piano seems to dissolve into something sublime and vaporous, a reminder that there are always greater forces at play.” – Hua Hsu for The New Yorker
