Canary Islands based synthesist Javi Cánovas kicks off 2015 with a work of sonic art showing resemblances of his 2009 release “In this moment, in this place”.
Four long tracks, culminating in 70-minutes of accessible and contemporary e-music, open with atmospheric intros, later replaced by dynamic, multi-layered sequencer patterns, gentle flowing melodic pads along some fluid retro sounds/solo-voices.
The Berlin School style blooms on the excellent “Phronesis”, with its fast-paced, powerful and evolving sequencing and accompanying textures and the 20-minute “Andreia”. The latter again features a beautiful ebb and flow of energetic parts along quieting, atmospheric interludes.
