Vidna Obmana - The River of Appearance (2006 2cd version)
Vidna Obmana - The River of Appearance (2006 2cd version) Quantity in Basket: None
Code: projekt02
Price: $14.99
2006 reissue, 2CDs including the original remastered ambient classic, with a bonus disc, the entire album performed by Oregon's Dreams in Exile. River was a high point of Obmana's early compositional style, presenting a minimal and serene flow utilizing sparse piano lines which intermingle with drifting keyboard loops and organic rainstick sounds. There is an overall harmonic unity on these 8 pieces, stripping dense walls back to reveal a slowly changing sound configuration. The 2nd disc is not merely bonus tracks, but a complete re-creation of the original on traditional instruments. Re-experience the everlasting melancholy of the River of Appearance on this exceptional 10th anniversary 2-cd release.

The favorite of many vidnaObmana fans, pleasantly long & slow-moving like much of his earlier work, but with a slightly more musical feel.

"This is surely a hyper-minimalism of sound, one that reflects the great inner serenity of this musician."
- Deep Listening magazine (Italy)

"Well-known ambient composer Vidna Obmana returns with a new set of ethereal synthscapes, some of his most enchanting and well-crafted to date."
- Napra Review (USA)
