Pontell's minimalist soundscapes are not "new-agey," although each track creates a calming sonic space, perfectly suited for meditation, yoga, relaxing, calming, contemplation, massage and body work.

Recent review (from Amazon.com):
Patience is a virtue, but I can't wait for Vol. 2
"I have to admit that I was a bit worried when I saw that there were only two tracks: my frazzled nerves and short-attention span wander during the course of even a four-minute pop song. But from the first note, I knew that I had to buy a second copy because it was just too good not to share. Listening required no effort on my part; it was like floating on a calm sea of sound, rising and falling with the gentle motion of aural waves. The steady repetition of what I can only describe as instrumental mantras is refreshing and unobtrusive. I am always a bit sad and surprised when the second track ends; Electronic Atmospheres takes me to a place somewhere outside of time, and quietly promotes and facilitates the restorative relaxation and internal reflection that escapes my conscious efforts.
It is an antidote to the literal and figurative noise in my life, and I highly recommend it to anyone who could use a little peace in his or her life."
