“Bluebox Collection” is the long-awaited cd box from the sympathetic German/Iran ambient musician Amir Baghiri.
The first cd “City” (also the oldest recording of the set) is a audiophile recording showing the different sides of a city, in which environmental sounds and impressions are implemented. To me, this is the weakest part of the box, as there’s a sense of restless and chaos almost constantly on or just under the surface.
“Live” contains a compilation of concert outtakes from 1999, in which parts are featured from Amir’s great concert in Cologne.
“Night” digs into the lighter and darker shades of the night time, offering densely woven textures with some tribal passages. This is great introspective and peaceful music to immerse into.
The final cd “Sleep” is one of extensive drones, which slowly shifts through the various stages of the process of sleep.
All in all, “Bluebox Collection” is a monumental work, which comes with a an extensive cd booklet with great photographs by Stefano Gentile and further explanation from Amir on the music.
