New music that sustains me, my only reason to exist. (PC)
The Russian prophet of dark sonic surrealism Igor Potsukailo (Bardoseneticcube) once again teams up with the Japanese master of dark ambience Manabu Hiramoto (Shinkiro). "Beyond the Edge of the Universe" is their third collaboration work after "Four Noble Truths" (2011, Athanor) and "Inner and Outer Space" (2015, Zhelezobeton). Like both previous albums, the new release continues to explore the ghostly dichotomy of inner and outer worlds, this time shifting the focus to the border of the known universe and beyond.
Unknown landscapes full of diverse acoustic phenomena are slowly unfolding before the aural gaze of the listener: from dense layers of synthetic sound and industrial samples to the finest emotional melodies, sensual female voices and echoes of a prepared koto. Such a rich sound palette allows the musicians to create incredible images, in the intricacies of which listeners can spend hours each time discovering something new. Beautiful, delicate and complex cosmic dark ambient music.
