"This is the second full-length offering from Greg Haines following his debut Slumber Tides (Miasmah, 2006), a beautifully contemplative forty-eight minute piece for string quintet, church organ, piano, percussion, and electronics. For the most part, this album was recorded in the Grunewald Church in Berlin with Nils Frahm. Whereas Slumber Tides played out as a gorgeous exploration of sound and composition by a curious musician with fresh ears, Until the Point of Hushed Support comes across as a bold statement from a unique modern composer. Throughout the four sections of the piece, we are taken seamlessly through an incredibly powerful dynamic range. With an assortment of sounds collected and processed over the last two years combined with the live instrumentation, Haines creates his own orchestra; a unique sonic world where the sound of a dying radio is just as important as a mournful violin."
