Synaesthesia is one of the various projects by Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber, who are also the driving forces behind Delerium and Frontline Assembly.
“Ephemeral” is their third (and also last) album under this alias, a sonic exercise in infectious tribal ambient with powerful but slow rhythms, drums and beats. The duo presents a stunning dynamic current of exotic, darker down-tempo instrumentals, all ranging between 8 and 10 minutes, with a few blissful passages along industrial trance and uptempo tracks. “Intelligence Dream” (some lovely Mellotron choirs here, which also kicks in on) “Entropy” and “Naked Sun” belong to the latter.
If you like entrancing tribal fusion/electro, the classic “Ephemeral” is a recording one should not miss out on.
