"Autopsy Of A Dream" is an introspective journey into the surrealist cognition of our human condition. An emotional exploration of sound styles including musique concrete, krautrock, and free-jazz. Verplanken embraces diverse references ranging from psychedelic electronica to the minimalist movement, citing influences from Pink Floyd and Philip Glass. Listen out for the sound design on "Last Interlude", combining gritty footsteps with micro-noise and ambient drones. The album features nine mysterious compositions based on several abstract ideas and conceptual metaphors.

The outstanding tracks are certainly “Sputnik Ghost Dance” which has something to do with Kraftwerk, the heavy “Last Interlude” or “Keep Your Light On” that rapidly concludes the album with synthetic organ in the background. It goes without saying that “Autopsy Of A Dream” is mainly dedicated to people keen on experimental electronic music, but not only them …".
