“Legacy”, Between Interval’s fifth chapter in something that was started with “Radio Silence” around 2003/2004, appears after almost eight years of silence. Life caught up with Swedish composer Stefan Strand, leaving him very little time to create new music and compositions for which he needs to immersive totally in a creative, uninterrupted flown for multiple hours.
Ambient music still forms the core of the 51-minute “Legacy”, but this time around also elements of electronica, dub techno (“Gravity Core”), Berlin School and trance are much more in there. In that sense it deviates from the aural content of the previous releases. It leaves an earthier and less cosmic footprint although there are still various passages along the way traveling inward.
Being a tad different from the previous albums, the very well-produced and mastered “Legacy” feels like a lush journey airing various levels of energy as it paints a new set of cinematic-angled sketches.
P.S. The album will also be released as a limited edition colored vinyl, of which the larger format will make the already fantastic artwork look even more stunning.
