Dweeling In The Void is the first EP released by Anakoluth. The man behind this project is Roman Hunziker. I already had the chance of speaking with him several times through msn, and I recall one conversation we had, where Roman stated he liked very much of preserving old values and ideas on the music, and this EP reflects those same ideas: progressive sometimes tecnish music with a touch of Goa Trance elements.
Let us hear what “Dweeling In The Void” means:
The first track In A Nutshell (T1) is an excellent opener. The track is rather smooth and calm, with some great leads, showing enormous maturity on the chosen sounds. It has a space atmosphere with long leads resembling to intergalactic sounds; most of the times this is accompanied with sounds that in a way create a spooky, invoking fear atmosphere. More to the end of the track it gets more dynamic and it ends perfectly the uplifting vibe that had been coming from the first minutes of the music. Favourite.
Achilles Hell (T2) is the lady that follows. Once more we are transported into the trademark of Roman. The first 5 minutes of the track it is very minimalist and some leads appear from nowhere and quickly go to nowhere. Very few sounds are used, and after these 5 minutes the track presents us with a melodic, somewhat hypnotic lead that revolves around Goa trance sounds.
Feinter Les Paupières stars with a slightly more dynamic energy, it is the faster track of the EP and it has the addition of interesting percussive elements. At about 4 minutes the tune enters in an uplifting spiral of sounds slowly morphing from minimalist type of tune into, and it surely reminds me that, a pure Goa Trance track! I like very much the vibe this tune transmits. Favourite.
And in an instance we arrive into the last track of the EP: Delphic Haze (T4). The EP ends in a good way, with the music slowing down a lit bit from the predecessor, but keeping the space atmosphere we find on the whole EP. Some leads on this track remind me alien speaking, and I love the combination of the sounds that seem to grow slowly, have a peak and quickly vanish. Hypnotic stuff is on the moisture also. And not to miss, some Goa trance elements to add to the main dish. Favourite.
The mastering of the CD was once more made by Sensient.
The artwork was made by Alexander Synaptic. Basically it revolves space landscapes – it is well connected with the music of the EP. I especially like the artwork of the inside CD – simply brilliant.
