Aqua Dorsa – The November Earth
CD, Gterma, 2013


Listening to the dark ambient music on “The November Earth” is like entering an infinite world of shadows and deep caverns. Along the journey, lots of foreboding, organic and remote undercurrents fly by.

If you’re looking for a kind of polished ambient, you won’t find it here as the drony sound design is rather abstract/psychedelic overall and even a bit cold occasionally. The aforementioned though is familiar territory for Italian composers Gianluigi Gasparetti (Oophoi) and Enrico Coniglio, forming the duo Aqua Dorsa.

The whole 66-minute outcome sounds a bit too clinical and fragmented to my ears, with the exception of the soft glowing (but far too short) interlude “Yellow Spots” and the drifting textural spheres of “Pulse of the Earth” attached to it.
