This is actually a re-release of the same album from 2001, for which California-based musician Stuart White completely remixed the original music next to adding the two-part piece “Devine Shadow” as a bonus.
On the album, Diatonis combines spoken word, poetry and floating, ambient textures, for which he extensively applied the technique of tape loops, known from Brian Eno and John Cage. Overall, the calming mood of the music with occasional experiments fits in the quiet textural works of James Johnson or Exuviae.
The lengthy “Entrance to the Garden” consists of various layers of sound which nicely blend together, occasionally venturing in space music territory. The philosophical one-liners showing up elsewhere on the album, give the music a reflective, musing effect.
As a bonus, the re-release contains two bonus tracks, the two-part atmospheric, well rendered “Devine Shadow”, which open and close the album.
Next to the audio cd, the re-release of “Invisible Order” also comes with a hybrid dvd disc which plays in both normal dvd video players (NTSC) and dvd-audio players. Three of the songs have videos while the others display a image while they play. The dvd video has both DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound.
