Ishq is the ambient chill-out project of the English musician Matt Hillier, who has traded his guitar in ’91 for a synthesizer, after which he made music using various aliases. He set the personal goal to compose music that was able to alter the human perception and the inner consciousness.
“Orchid” is released in two different versions: a single cd on Interchill Records, and a limited double cd on Dakini Records.
The first cd contains seven long, uninterrupted tracks of which the looping drum in the opening track “Skyblue” fortunately enough stays on the background.
The second cd of the limited edition contains four more engaging tracks, in all 40 minutes of music.
Let there be no mistake about it: “Orchid” is a winner for ambient music fans!
