“Shadows of the Heart” is a recording of serene, nocturnal and overall dreamy textural ambiences derived from acoustic and electric sources to which composer Dan Pound applied techniques of repeated chord progression motifs.
At first, the 7-track/55-minute outcome of drifting and introspective soundwaves seem to head toward the league of Roach’s “Structures from Silence” and “Quiet Music”, but the acoustic ingredients secure a smooth sparkling and slightly more vibrant character. Nonetheless, the gentle ambience progression and slow evolving flow of spacious strings form the core of “Shadows of the Heart”, making this the most fluid, caressing and introspective release from Pounds catalog to date.
