Seascapes
CD/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Virtual, 2014
Here’s another fine album meant for low-volume listening. For the 7-track album "Seascapes", Matt Hillier (aka Ishq) has come up with a set of imaginative and textural soundscapes backed by subtle environmental recordings, all based and inspired by the winter seas in Cornwall and written as a series of seascape paintings in sense.

Here, the slow morphing and soft vibrating sonic nectar drifts and shifts effortlessly into another shape, gently cascading and curling as the rise and fall of free form tapestries move onward. If you’re fond of tranquil and lush aural bliss with a fine dash of cosmic space ("Lightship Signals") or neo-classical music ("Cromity Arc" and the enchanting, melancholic-flavored "To the Gulls Way") thrown in, the cinematic chill-out renderings making up "Seascapes" will suit you for sure.

Headphone listening is recommended when submerging in the ethereal waves of this classy ambient work, that never become too velvet.
