An otherworldy collection of adroitly-crafted pieces of dense, acoustic guitar pickings, mellotron, orchestron, claviola, cello, piano, pedal steel, and voice (Wendy Allen). Delicate and sometimes spooky, Capsules is like the lost soundtrack to a Brothers Quay film, a collection of lovely, brittle compositions viewed through a hazy, antique looking-glass. The Balustrade Ensemble has been described as "an underwater haunted bird sanctuary kaleidoscope", which isn't too far off the mark. Like the aural background to a Victorian science fiction film, world traveler Grant Miller (from industrial-ambient Mandible Chatter fame), with the help of Scott Solter (Tarantel, Charles Atlas, Boxharp, etc.), has developed an amazing rendition of steampunk-ambient.
