Six tracks, 60 minutes. CD in card sleeve
Tangential glimpses remotely echoed, untethered from touch. No time nor place, no past nor future, internal, external. Sculpting from energy, clouded motion vaguely slipping. Evanescent vibration, without meaning apart from its own open secret.
“An intense, slow deep ambient excursion; hovering, shimmering, dreamlike, Surreal.”–CD Baby
“Deep drone ambient textures and dense atmospheres, presented in six uninterrupted parts by Robert Rich and Faria label owner Andrey Sadovnikov. Mixed and mastered by Robert Rich”–Databloem.com
“Delicately undulating textures are established as a foundation for tenuous electronics. Along with environmental recordings, these auxiliary tones serve to embellish that basis with subtle nuances, coaxing variations from the atmospheric flow. While deeper tonalities tickle the mix from below, lending pensive oscillations to the foundation, vibrating effects are applied from above, generating a shimmering field of stars.
Gradually, alternative sounds are utilized to increase those variations. Bell tones create a reverent presence contrasted by an escalation of certain high-end sounds whose unpredictable paths categorize them as meteorological conditions of the soundscape. As the bell tones submerge into the now-pulsating foundation, more strident sounds emerge to influence things with their shriller cadence. Throughout, the stability of a chilled environment is preserved. This frigid mood is enhanced by the introduction of tonalities whose timbre evokes high altitudes. A muffling condition creeps in, generating an expansive disposition to the ambience. Sounds of a muted metallic nature appear in a breathing pattern, establishing illumination and revealing the infinite scope of the mix. Set to run as a seamless piece of music, these compositions embody serene ambience with a hint of industrial edging.” –Matt Howarth / Sonic Curiosity
