My review of "Future Flows" CD by Steve Roach

Posted by Richard Gürtler on April 21, 2014 at 3:04am 0 Comments

Long time on the waiting list in my reviewing schedule, now finally the right time has come. Released one year ago on Projekt, at the end of April, 2013, just few days before the legendary Ambicon 2013 gathering. The cover images feature breathtaking stone balance art by Michael Grab, known as Gravity Glue. Exciting visual beginning, so let's initiate the auralscaping part...



The journey reveals very silently with "An Omnipresent Sense Prevails", an 11-minute composition, but it takes only about minute and the free-floating drift spirals toweringly into grandiosely expansive panoramas, gracefully gliding and undulating with magmatic immenseness. These amorphously embracing and essentially contemplative soundwalls are holding an undeniable signature of the master. "Spectrum Of Change" safely dwells in the terrains of sheer atmospheric beauty, slightly less denser and more minimal on the first exploration, although multi-dimensional billows continuously emanate and then fade out into vaporously permeating stillness. "Air Meditation" paints infectiously mesmerizing circles guarded above by voice-like drone blankets. Rather shorter piece, but hauntingly mindscaping and precisely interacting with its title. "The Texture Of Remembering", which gets over 11 minutes, enters straightly into more aerial realms, warmly meandering through profoundly stimulating elevations and meticulously coalesced with assortment of cybernetic sparkles. What a journey!!! Make sure you have your headphones with you, immersion extraordinaire awaits here!!! "Rapt In Night" immediately dives into abyssal drone heaven, quite short, but utterly monolithic and expansive. This track masterfully captures all the essence of the nocturnal serenity!!! "Heart Of Light", another brief piece, keeps on the path of…

Hello.

 

Today's song list is brought to you by the letter p.

 

I'm not sure what I'm going to do for q which is supposed to be today so I might have to delay that one and catch up later.

 

For my first song selection, I'm going back to 1967 to Pink Floyd's Piper at the Gates of Dawn album and my favorite track, Chapter 24.

 

I first heard this over the summer of 1983 I believe it was and it reminds me of my bedroom at the house we used to live in in Boca Raton Florida.

 

I had that room wired up for quadrophonic sound, well, actually, two speakers into each channel of a stereo turntable connected by those y adapters, you probably remember those.  That was when if you had questions, RadioShack actually knew what they were talking about.

For the next track, I'm moving ahead a few years to the early 1970's and a German group called

Popol Vuh. The album is called Bruder Des Schattens - Sohne Des Lichts and the track is called Hoere, Der Du Wagst.

Quiet, atmospheric, solitudinous movement,
circumventing synapsed, processed thought . . .

. . .focusing: with razor precision upon these varied, aural spaces
that rearrange lapsed mentation as intrusions beckon . . . inbound.

And reestablish themselves in skull-connectivity . . .
. . . as the need for respite again makes its requirements known.

Chez Mosc

Posted by Bill Fox on April 19, 2014 at 2:29pm 0 Comments

19 April:  Chez Mosc, the weekly internet concert featuring Twyndyllyngs, will be at its usual 6 pm eastern timezone.  Since the USA is already on Daylight Saving Time, that's GMT-4 **NOT GMT-5** and may be an hour earlier than you normally expect, depending upon where you live.
