“The Distance” is the debut release of musician/composer Simon Walsh, aka Symatic Star, who hails from South Western Australia.
The music features slow morphing, free floating and droning textures with a profound outerworldly and mysterious feel. It even makes the outcome sound like a living, breathing creature. Mind though there are also occasional abstract and experimental/noisy elements implemented in the longform sonic excursions. The latter especially applies to the last part of the first piece.
All in all, “The Distance” is a securely crafted deep ambient/space journey through the heliosphere and beyond, only suitable for more experienced listeners.
