As is, Grapes from the Estate's ambient clusters navigate a field of emptiness. The first composition, "Corkscrew", would make an ideal soundtrack for one of Bill Viola's single-channel watery videos, especially the moments in which a microscopic lens outlines the surprisingly complex contours of each droplet. Ambarchi, again alone with this electric guitars, ups the enveloping absence of "Corkscrew", doubling its duration. It's what I imagine a black and white Lite Brite would sound like if it were allowed a temporary whisper. No matter how camouflaged, a guitar is a guitar.

Grapes from the Estate features new instrumentation (strings, tuned bells, percussion and others that can only be guessed at), but the singular and unmistakable influence that Ambarchi exerts on these new materials is what makes it such an indelible work. There is a reconciliation of his love of song-based music and his determination to deal in pure sound. The result is a work that truly eludes such arbitrary definitions

Definitely of the same lineage as the guitarist's previous albums for Touch, this one sees him perfect his art - the four pieces sound purer and even more focused - and expand his instrumental palette. The opening and closing pieces come closer than what you'd expect: multi-tracked guitar loops consisting of fragmented tonal melodies coupling abstraction with a sense of sweetness and peacefulness.
