about

Gift Culture's full-length debut CD Temple at Dawn features lush soundscapes and solid downtempo grooves, balancing warm human emotion with the latest deep DSP technology, analogue synthesis, and computer-based non-linear editing. Michael Hale transcends the cold sterility of stereotypical computer music, infusing his songs with organic and melodic elements of trance and dub, along with tribal rhythms. Temple at Dawn is a timeless album and a true pleasure to experience.

"Temple At Dawn swings you up into its aural atmosphere and slips you into a daze as rhythmic loops, soothing voices and zaps of noise layer themselves into the stacks of your perception. Each track swirls around in your head like a spacey trance or a tribal dance; once in its enchanting embrace, you won't want to walk away from Temple At Dawn." - Sally Stafford, Feedback Magazine

"Similar in scope and execution to Orbital's In Sides, Temple at Dawn spins remarkably dramatic and emotive melodies out of chunks of digital noise, turning Hale's computerized bleeps and blips into bewilderingly detailed sonic landscapes made of glass, plastic and steel." - Steve English, Splendid Magazine
