“Timelapse in Mercury” is the fourth release on the UK-based Virtual-label and the first in a new deeper series called “Virtual Space” which is all about deeper and more outer space inspired music and explorations and music to float to.
From the press sheet I learned the album was written under the guise of Ishq (aka Matt Hillier) a year before “Orchid” came out. Unfortunately it was never finished and ended up shelved.
Sonically, the nine lush, slowly morphing tracks breath a vast and expansive spacial quality as the delicately layered textures and microstructures drift and glide through a world of nebulous forms and interplanetary landscapes and architecture.
This especially is an album for the headphone explorers and horizontal moments between night and day.
