Review: Never fear! The future of ambient electronic experimental music is here! A constantly shifting electronic landscape to play in. Set the controls for the heart of the sun!
If You Like: Xenakis ,Pink Floyd, Quiet Sun, Steve Reich, Eno
Review (favorites denoted by *):
*1/ daily limits lie (2:30) - electronic symphonic start> slow tempo builds to midtempo space jam> quick stop
2/ location sharing (5:44) - electronic wind sound starts> slow tempo with pulses> melody sift @ 2:25 - modular sweeping sounds> quick fade
3/ with a hint of blue (3:10) - pulsing quiet start (like signals from space)> slow tempo space jam> slow fade
*4/ glass surface (6:06) - slow quiet start> gradually more instruments come into play> fade to slow hum> violins solo, build in intensity & volume> slow tempo jam, drifting into an expanding universe & fade
*5/ glacier (8:32) - ominous sounds like dark clouds drifting in> builds in volume & intensity> slow fade
6/ background refresh (5:04) - percussive effects morph into heavy handed space jam with ominous animal sounds> morphs into uptempo space jam & fades
7/ dearest rewinder these (7:39) heavy percussive marimba-like midtempo start builds to uptempo percussive ambient jam & then into outer space> mellows into electronic nirvana with heavy cellos augmented by heavy metal xylophone percussive effects & stops
8/ elegant (2:16) - high-pitched sonic start morphs into low chord modulating blasts & fades
*9/ quiet electronic keyboard-like space jam with reverse flute notes> builds in volume with synth overlay> drone to long fade
10/ there are no gradients (6:39) - off-kilter slow tempo space jam like creatures in a forest> quick stop
11/ ash (0:58) - short uptempo synth solo> quick stop
*12/ in the manner of her operations (5:46) - slow tempo ominous sounding synth & wind effects morphs into midtempo percussive space jam> shifts to pulsing heavy marimba & stops
13/ airport for light (1:29) - upper register space drone starts & fades
*14/ in a clear wall (7:32) - slow tempo multi- textured space jam morphs into pusing loud slow jam & fades
*15/ return (6:36)- shimmering slow tempo electronic start morphs into slow mellotron-like strings> swells in volume & intensity> quick fade
