“Universal Ripples” is the third collaboration between Dutch musicians Human Metronome (aka Eelke van Hoof) and 33 Tetragammon (aka Wasili Papadopoulos).
The music, presented in five “Phase”, contains glimpses of Robert Rich and Steve Roach, as it smoothly roams in spacious caverns of textural ambiences with an organic edge.
In addition, I second listening and experiencing the full impact of the music is something special, as the expansive dronescapes, field recordings, bamboo flute, percussion and the sound of singing bowls gradually take you on an introspective trip.
To me, these immersive and well-constructed sonic worlds most of all are resonating and slow morphing ambient textures, the outcome being a 73-minute breathing space of soft whirling elements.
All in all, “Universal Ripples” is a work of art meant for profound and focussed listening. Its impact is emphasized due to eye for detail and the excellent, precise mastering.
