Bordering the new age jazz-fusion & experimental genres, this release by Michigan based trumpeter Justin Walter is a breath of fresh air for both the mind & soul, his second LP release on the Kranky label. From the man himself: “Unseen Forces is a collection of recordings that document the use of improvisation as a means to
create sounds that can either function on their own or serve as the foundation of, or source material for, additional improvisation”
Like: Tatsuro Kojima, Avishai Cohen, Sonic Skypilots,
All good: Loving 2 (All tracks have long fades)
1) 1001 (5.15) Delicate textures drone away into the distance.
2) Unseen Forces (7.15) Slow moving piece, with extra tenderness.
3) Sixty (8.13) Steamy trumpet over various manipulated synths. Louder & more experimental than the previous.
4) End of Six (1.25) A peaceful moment.
5) It’s Not What You Think (7.18) Bright & perky with a spacey like quality.
6) Isotope (7.06) Mild synth play that takes an almost industrial tone towards the end.
7) Following (2.20) Atmospheric & laid back, albeit with a quicker pace.
8) Soft Illness (3.05) Darker drone feel, although still relaxed.
9) Red Cabin (1.39) Floating away gently to conclude.
