“Exosphere” was created between January 2003 and June 2005. The album was already announced years ago by Amir Baghiri, but I guess he couldn’t find any proper label which was interested to release it, so he finally did it all by himself.
“Exophere” offers ten tracks making up 68 minutes of music continuing the fine tradition of space & tribal ambient which Baghiri is known for. The album starts off quiet but after a few minutes a slow and later on accelerating and prominent sequence shows up which is very reminiscent of the extended track “In the Heat of Venus” on Steve Roach’s album “Western Spaces”.
This continues for a while before things slow down, and starting off again with various organic elements and some fierce tribal percussion entering stage in the third track. Amir Baghiri composed tracks together with Spanish ambient musician Max Corbacho, from where things begin to settle in an overall quiet way.
From “Stratosphere” on, things wander around in atmospheric, dreamy territory, nicely continued till the end. In all, the music is nicely executed, especially the second overall drifting half of the album which follows in the footsteps of Roach’s intimate soundscape musings.
