Parallel Worlds – Shade
CD, DiN, 2009

“Shade” is the fifth release of Greek electronic musician Bakis Sirros, aka Parallel Worlds, which is the studio follow-up to the album “Obsessive Surrealism”.
Bakis himself considers the outcome as his “most technically-advanced work” in terms of the use of his large collection of modular synths.

Although there is a distinct sense of darkness roaming through the veins of this imaginary sonic landscape, various patterns of tension, crispy sounds, effects and subdued emotions come to the surface.

But this not just an affair of warm well crafted soundscapes and melodic, analogue sequenced music, as Mr Sirros also aptly implements his sonic wizardy with beats and electronic rhythms to give things an extra lick of paint and depth.
Occasionally, the adventurous music takes a surreal, slightly experimental turn, as e.g. on “Compulsive Mechanics”, but I absolutely love the great cinematic feel and tensions embedded in tracks such as “Urgency” and “Ungreat Certainty”.

The remarkable, very well produced and mastered music of “Shade” is able to capture and keep the attention of the listener all the way.
Or, to quote the last line of the press-sheet: with “Shade”, Parallel Worlds show a musical maturity and command of sonic atmospherics that takes the music on a journey, moving through dreams and shades, aiming for the light.
Bakis again did a good job!
