What we got here is deep space music from Russia. “Area of Habitat” is the debut album by Andrey Hlybov, aka Rigel Centaurus, who has been doing this kind of music since five years or so.
The floating and highly spacious sounding “Area of Habitat” reflects the dimensions and sense of awe of the universe, and imagines what it it might be like to travel through these vast spaces.
The expansive soundscape music is a 64-minute journey of an overall soothing, ethereal and free floating nature, that has been made using soft-synthesizers only. Occasionally, the music shifts to a more symphonic shape (e.g. “Farewell to Earth” part 2), but always remains its transparent, tranquil and smoothened character.
All in all, if you prefer a calming and drifting journey through the endless stellar region, “Area of Habitat” will do the job all the way.
