"We Gaia" is the fourth tour-de-force of Australian-based ambient-composer Anthony Asher Wright. His both peaceful as intimate music still holds strong influences of Harold Budd and Brian Eno, and that approach hasn’t changed for this new album.
The lengthy album, divided in eleven tracks, lingers on just over 77 minutes and again has the ability to capture the listener from the beginning.
Warm, engaging soundscapes slowly float on and on, sometimes blending masterfully with some beautiful female vocals and whispers placed in the background.
Next to that is a new addition to Ashera’s music: some perfectly matching lap steel guitar played by Gary Brown adding an extra level to Ashera’s .
This music really makes you drift away and listening to it is a exceptional experience as such. Those familiar with music of Liquid Mind, Exuviae or the floating music of Vir Unis should really take notice of this talented musician from Down Under. Highly recommended !
