"A Monument of Chance is the second release in the Archipelago series of collaborations between members of a core group of California-based experimental musicians. In this case, Thermal and Seofon, both participants in the rave group Ambient Temple of Imagination, come together to produce an album of rhythmic, multi-faceted ambience. Each of the four tracks on A Monument of Chance unfolds slowly, beginning with a simple drum loop or set of sounds and building up in intensity as a variety of loops work their way into the mix. Rhythm never overpowers ambience; instead, it serves as a backdrop for pseudo-melodies and abstract sounds, drawing the listener into each piece. Most of the music here has a fairly high level of energy, with the notable exception of the gentler "Application of Buddhistic Classics." It may not be for the beat-shy, but A Monument of Chance isn't bland techno either; its trancelike rhythms and slow evolutionary patterns make for a brand of ambience that is listenable on many different levels."
