For the concept album (Four Visions of) “Canada”, the four members of the Dutch electronica band ModularWhite decided to present musical ambiences which would transfer their own feelings, visions and ideas of Canada in four separate 15 minute solo tracks, paying a tribute to its landscape and certain (historical) aspects.
The first track by Rene Montfoort paints a beautiful, peaceful ambient picture of the grand spaces, built of slowly morphing, nicely cascading sound pads and effects.
“Xylo Peak-Grainy Falls” by Michel Bekkering is a very nice, quiet ambient piece with choir sounds. In the second part, captivating sequencer patterns and a solo voice show up, lending the piece a bit of a late ‘70’s Schulze-like backbone.
