ISHVARA
Magik Square of the Sun
CD-R, Private Release, 2005
Ishvara is the first of a series of limited edition releases of UK ambient composer Matt Hillier, also known as Ishq. They are released on Virtual, Ishqs private label which plans to release more extra-ordinary, experimental and unusual deep ambient electronic works.

The style "imaginary" is connected this release, which starts with the 21 minute "Nomad", a nice blend of tasty lounge like electronics which are very well produced.

The second track, clocking in at over 17 minutes, is a bit more experimental and freeform, also featuring some soft vocoder voice. The next tracks are all shorter and carry on in a dreamier, peaceful manner, avoiding to get into any flat New Age.

This is keenly manufactured spiritual down tempo techno/ambient to keep in mind which works great when listening through headphones.
