As the title suggests, 10 abstract electronic artists invite listeners to get lost in their favorite places. Field recordings of these places are followed by musical invocations of them. Dot Tape Dot scrubs himself in his tub, John Kannenberg transforms the British Museum into a cathedral through which thousands of ghosts pass, and Biosphere loops a half-asleep jazz ballad from lighthouse sounds. Some cheat by claiming their studios as their favorite places, and many here perform introspective works that ignore listeners. Still, there ought be more experiments like Favourite Places, at a time when rootlessness and alienation from the outside world prevail.
