|Artist: Matt Coldrick|
Album: Music For A Busy Head
Label: Absolute Ambient
In a world that never sleeps; full of electric light, cable TV, the Internet, |
The seven tracks on this album move gradually from monochromatic dronescapes to multi-layered interlocked sequencer loops and onward to shifting harmonies and wandering melodies; all within a design meant to enhance lower levels of consciousness. Coldrick utilizes his synth's spectrum of sound alternating between warm bass swells and lofty cloud enshrouded voices; the stratification of sound exemplified as this album is felt as strongly in the feet as it is in the more cerebral areas. The focus becomes a bit clearer as the album advances along its gentle contour; yet the listener moves inversely, deeper into the phases of sleep. Each piece plays in a key corresponding to a colour - the tone's analogous visible frequency.
