All who love in-depth ambient journeys through sound with a profound sense of world music will probably know some individual works of Loren Nerell and Mark Seelig. These two accomplished composers decided to start collaborating after a fruitful and most satisfying meeting at Steve Roach’s 2010 SoundQuest Fest.
As the notes on the cd-cover state, their efforts have led to a musical exploration merging the ambient soundworlds of Southeast Asia and South America with the spiritual influences of Bali and India.
Personally, I feel quite mesmerized by the mysterious (under)currents flowing and shimmering through the six hypnotizing, highly spacious tracks of world music, which execute the principle of “less is more” brilliantly. Headphone listening is recommended.
