Press reviews & comments
The outcome of "The Edge of a Fairytale" sure has been worth the wait, offering a fascinating ambient journey with a highly cinematic impact, presented as 11 tracks of deep and occasionally darker textural music.
The expertly crafted and mastered soundscapes smoothly move through mysterious and dense sonic worlds, flowing back and forth through expansive spaces and darker caverns that are beyond imagination and wonder.

I cannot precisely define what it is that makes Between Interval’s brand of ambient music so special, but I can emphatically state that he is one of my favorite artists in the genre today.
- Phil Derby, Electroambient Space
...this album is a invigorating masterpiece, a blast of spiritual energy and light. Between Interval has become one to watch for me, and this album is why. Recommended for any fan of ambient music. An unconditional 5 stars.
- Josh Landry, In Place of Dreary Patterns
...outstanding, mysteriously deep and massive ambiences of the highest caliber!
- Richard Gürtler, Relaxed Machinery
It's an impressive work, from the mystery of 'The Great Void' to the majesty of 'Portals In Time', with it's strings and cavernous electronic swells. Strand's fusions of light and dark; of gentle, natural landscapes and huge spacescapes, are seamless and mesmerizing.
Opening track ‘Delta Capricorni’ offers a pretty good indication as to to the sorts of deep ambient atmospheres to be found amongst the eleven tracks here, opening proceedings with sorts of vast synth pads, harmonic sweeps and deep, ominous bass drones you’d associate with Tangerine Dream or ‘Baraka’s Michael Stearns – indeed, it’s practically begging to be accompanied with some time-lapse video footage of desert clouds.
- Chris Downton, Cyclic Defrost
This new work delicately uncovers a mysterious sound world deeply mired in the mythos of the unseen.
These smooth compositions have a clean spacey nature, velvet drones and glossy washes welling up into curving waves of sound, softly undulating sequential phrases and patterns somewhere just below the surface. Dark, shifting masses of tone at times suggest enormous expanses, lighter strains faintly illuminating the gloom, atonal threads suggesting air movement.
