SiJ explores Time Travel on the album The Time Machine.
The Time Machine propels us forwards and backwards in time. From ancient civilization, where the chatter reverberates in clouded temples. To our impending doom in a future stripped of humanity. A grinding squeal as the paradox cracks reality. At our feet blue skies reflected in a desert of broken mirrors.
Warm soothing field recordings mix with bright overlays and distant instruments. Taking the help of Textere Oris, Particula, Wandering Wind and others, this album is as detailed as it is complex.

From the Sij and Textere Oris – Reflections Under the Sky review at Santa Sangre.

Cryo Chamber is a label known for frigid, seeping dark ambient sounds, with artists like Atrium Carceri and Sabled Sun carrying the torch. Reflections Under the Sky, the first collaborative work between Ukraine’s Sij and Russia’s Textere Oris, is such a branch-out album. It’s still ambient, but it barely qualifies as “dark,” and certainly not “cold.” In fact, the word that comes to mind the most while listening to it is “meditative.”

That out of the way, it should be pointed out that the album is quite good. Sij and Textere Oris have managed to capture a warm, meditative sound without resorting to the typical New Age “Zen garden” instrumentation.
