PAUL ELLIS
From Out Of The Vast Comes Nearness
CD, LotusPike, 2011
About two years after his last hard-copy release "Last Hiding Place of Beauty", synthesist Paul Ellis brings us the 74-minute "From Out Of The Vast Comes Nearness" (working title "Watch the stars come one by one") of which the music is especially dedicated to Steve Reich, Klaus Schulze, Peter Baumann and Patrick O’Hearn.

Most of all, its solid and well-crafted music merges the sound of the vintage electronic years with the large range of possibilies in high-tech sound design provided by modern music technology.
The minimalist outcome, made up by five slowly evolving long-form tracks, is an emotive exercise in electronics, sounding very open and transparent while also carrying a strong reflective undercurrent. Paul’s sonic kaleidoscope of lush sequencing and melodic lines along smooth solo voices and gentle textures creates a timeless, magical feel and unhurried atmosphere.

All in all, listening to "From Out Of The Vast Comes Nearness" is a deep listening experience and should be your choice if you’re looking for long extended impressionistic ambient/space music with a contemporary touch.
