The album “Ceasing to Exist” is what I would call a beautiful but intensive journey into the darkening lands of ambient music.
For this 63-minute release, Frank Makowski & Stephen Parsick (aka [‘ramp] ) collaborated with experimental guitarist Markus Reuter.
The seven hypnotizing tracks presented here feel like a voyage into nothingness, which never seems to end. One can notice a lot of nuances and detail in the microstructures and minimal soundscapes, which nicely shape shift as the dark mood carries on and on.
All in all, “Ceasing to Exist” is a fascinating, morphing journey into the deep end of things.
