“The man behind The Sight Below (and, of course, the excellent Daydreaming album on Miasmah) returns with a gorgeous, limited edition 7″ for new Chicago imprint, Immune. The Seattle-dwelling composer teams up with Dany Norbury for ‘Hopes And Past Desires’, a mesmerising, hauntingly beautiful piece of music comprised of exchanges between muffled electric piano chords and Norbury’s otherworldly, reverberant strings. In terms of its constituent parts this is an incredibly simple piece of music, but there’s magic in these grooves, and Irisarri’s music makes a resoundingly haunting contribution to the realm of electronic/modern classical composition. Flip over and ‘Watching As She Reels’ is suggestive of a more upbeat take on Deaf Center’s Pale Ravine, or perhaps a more minimal Library Tapes; there’s a certain sepia-tinted quality to these sounds, and the whole exercise seems soaked in memory and a sense of nostalgia (for something or other) that always manages to avoid outright sentimentality. Absolutely sublime music – pick one up while you can.” - Boomkat

“Deeply expressive minimal melancholy from Irisarri, whose fluid style on the cello and ability with a particularly sad computer both work out in his favor. Cold, slow, bright compositions of intense emotional depth, in a very settling, pleasing way. Pretty special stuff here, both pieces turning on their individual axes instead of going anywhere, allowing the light to catch their most striking facets. Those of you enamored with guys like Jóhann Jóhannsson may want to look in this direction.” – Still Single; Dusted Magazine

“Irisarri, who cites Mahler, Debussy and Ravel as influences, combines rustling static, haunting piano melodies, a gleeful slide guitar and at times even glitchy shynthesizer sounds to evoke a Lynchian otherworldliness”
