Parallel Worlds is the Greek ambient musician Bakis Siros, who has collected a vast assortment of vintage equipment, such as huge analogue modulars and analogue step sequencers.
“Insights” is his second release of which the introductory tracks “Mechanical Wood” and “Dark and Blue” are quite heavy, as they don’t bear any melody. Both pieces stick are slightly industrial ambient with pure analogue rhythms, glitch and experimental fx’s.
But then things change on “Detailed Matter” and subsequent pieces. The music turns out to be more friendly and accessible as some melodies show up, of which the beautiful “The Past” even closes in a melancholic manner.
Ok, overall, one might feel there are quite some strange and quirky sounds scattered within the music, but there’s also a mellow side to it which makes this music remarkable. This is also due to the stunning sound and production qualities which makes the music stand-out in its own way.
Although this isn’t exactly my type of music, one easily recognises some keen musicianship, which fans of Pete Namlook and alike will surely appreciate.
