Album: Colour Glow
Colour Glow by Ashera inhabits a wondrous realm of beautiful sonic imagery and gentle synthetic atmospheres. Obviously, a great deal of attention has been devoted to designing each piece to rouse in us different shades of feelings. The tender timbres coaxed from Ashera's synthesizers glow with emotion, the sparse female guest vocals are reassuring and the only deep contrast felt is that between the saturation of benevolent harmonies and the untimely silence at album's end. While this album offers elements of the classic ambient style, Ashera incorporates a cadence in his music and so focus and direction. Colour Glow is electronic music realized through a system of intuition - the technology of the soul. The result is a relaxing, gentle experience with an intonation that will influence the listener in a positive way.
