“Memorophilia” is the fifth cd of the English duo Odette and Kit Johnson on which they continue the musical path of its predecessors. Soundician’s output always had a rather unique style and sound, and on this recording the duo further investigates the boundaries of their minimal oriented rhythmic/melodic style. Although dedicated to “those we have loved and lost”, the overall impact of the album is positive and warm. The album nicely kicks off with the great melodic soundings of “Cornfield”, followed by twelve more tracks realming in uplifting textures (“Dawn”) to moody, introspective outings (“Edge”) or almost heavenly, quieting soundscaping (“Lullaby for Jay”). It’s great to see these two musician deepen and further sculpturing their musical skills, I hope lots of Em-fans will finally dig and appreciate their noble excursions of well composed and produced electronica with a slight vein of new age.
