New Deepspace album "Blue Worlds I" out now on bandcamp.
|Hi fellow electronic/ambient music lovers,
I have just released the 10th deepspace album "Blue Worlds I", two years after the previous release: "The Empty Atoms". It is available now on bandcamp, and will be on Spotify and iTunes and the like in a week or so.
Here's the link:
Here's the spiel:
Following from 2016's "The Empty Atoms", the new deepspace album "Blue Worlds I" moves into glacial and minimal territory, evoking quiet and empty space, all tinged with the idea of blue-ness.
Here is a little bit of impressionistic prose about the album, should you want to read and listen, or simply read about it
From the outset of the 17 minute introductory pure dream of "Dark Dark Blue", a glacial pace is suggested, cautiously outlined by a solitary bass part. "Sky Elevator" is ambient muzak, a sound which appears in a few guises on this album- music playing on an unmanned deck of an isolated starship, with no ears to hear it. Here, we are in deep-spaces that are empty, clean and scientific: The blue sound of a vertical lift rising into the vagueness of a non-earth sky. Sinking into the Martini is an apt description of the guitars that colour the next piece: "Halcyon Flowering Seas"- this is all about submerging and disappearing into dreams and unrecognised beautiful worlds, real or unreal. "Fields of White Grass" moves in sepia, flying in half-time over un-natural fields of white grass that blind as they move slowly in the wind. "A Guess of Blue" borrows and transfigures a phrase from J.R.R Tolkien to evoke the fractal pastel beauty of the disappearing horizon. "City of the Blue Electron" imagines flying over a vast blue city. "Sublunary" is a beautiful word that suggests we live as animals under the moon. The piece is arctic in colour, and imagines the view down from the moon. "Walking Along Beneath Dark Skyscrapers" beguiles with dreamy guitars but then moves to darker ambient territory with textures reminiscent of 2009's "The Glittering Domain" to close the album.
