well, it's pretty subjective, you know. :) However, now that some time passed, I'd gather I wasn't very precise in my attempt to perform a comparison. I'd say they are just different, each Ishq, Elve and Colourform, all without any significant intersections. While essentially being a part of one man's mind (Matt Hillier), these projects, on the other hand, have pretty solid peculiar pivot. You can notice that by simply noticing that they provide different emotions. All relaxing, but all different. I guess it's just what differs "Virtual" projects from other ambient ones.
Another beautiful piece of work from Matt Hillier himself and passed away legend Jake Stephenson... Perhaps, my favourite project from all so for not very big Virtual family. Adorable music from first minute till the end. This is definitely superior than Ishq and Elve.
