According to interviews with the troll-in-charge, Mortiis, Fata Morgana exists as a side project to express different qualities of music than his main project (which is entitled Mortiis, of course). Being only slightly familiar with a couple Mortiis tracks, I can only guess as why these particular pieces don't fall into the modus operendi as they are ominous dirges composed entirely on keyboards (occasionally spiced up with a little drum track). But each piece is fairly remarkable assuming you don't mind an entirely instrumental album composed on keyboards. I especially enjoyed "Fata Morgana" as it is actually the "happy" track on the record. Mortiis displays some talent in these compositions and it only whets my appetite to find more of his work.
