Release data:

Steve Roach & Vidna Obmana – Cavern of Sirens
CD, Projekt Records, 1997


“Cavern of Sirens” is the follow-up of the duo’s previous album “Well of Souls”, again nicely packaged in a fold-out digipack containing beautiful artwork by Dirk Serries wife Martine Verhoeven.

The overall atmosphere on the 72-minute “Cavern of Sirens” is one of darker textures and slowly shifting, dense shades.
In the first half of the album, they are complemented by hypnotic, cyclic rhythms and assorted strange instruments such as claypots, plus Suspended Memories-kindred voices and atmospheres.
Personally, I would have loved to hear some more drifting, atmospheric textures supporting these varied organic elements.

Fortunately, things change at the end of the album as it winds down in a grand way with the quiet soundings of “The Graceful Sky”. Its beautiful, transparent and mesmerizing textures remember of Steve Roach’s piece “The Return”, but now lasting longer.

All in all, this is a deep and compelling sonic journey of electro-trance percussion electro-trance percussion and some harmonic textures for all those whole look for another journey into The Soundcurrent started on their mutual albums “The Spiritual Bonding” and “Well of Souls”.
