GENERAL INFORMATION ===================== Album: Lotus Rising Artist: Chronotope Project Year: 2018 Genre / Style: Electronic / New Age / Ambient DESCRIPTION ================== Fully and effectively imagined, Lotus Rising (58'56") opens up a warm and beautiful space, then moves slowly through it. Recording under the name Chronotope Project multi-instrumentalist Jeffrey Ericson Allen takes time to take in the grandeur of existence - with music that moves from darkness to light along a spaceward tracking arc. His works slowly unfold just as easily in the dreamy brilliance of harmonic climaxes, as they do darkly in the thickening air of a room-shaking rumble. With its celestial choirs, glowing synths and delicate atmospheres, the eight tracks on Lotus Rising contain a fair amount of Spacemusic drama. Once the sequencers kick in the listener is treated to a delightful acceleration in energy - but not enough to disturb the contemplative and expansive nature of this album. Repeating patterns seem to bubble up - providing sleek propulsion across shimmering sonic landscapes - then coalesce and metamorphose, drifting away as the spacey lines meet, combine, and evaporate. Blurry chords extend above imaginative electronic modulations - just beneath the misty aura that surrounds each sound. Each a singular flowing thought, these works ask us to tune into the quieter frequencies. But being meditative does not mean Lotus Rising has to be vague. With its easy cosmic intimations it guides your psyche to stillness through searching probes from the warm heart of Electronic Music. From mysterious and remote to ethereal and heavenly, the eight silvery tracks on Lotus Rising are quieting to the mind. This album's drifting approach - warm in tone and pleasantly melodious - gives this music a welcoming atmosphere. From textures of desolation, and still chill zones, to vigorous workouts of charged musical charm, Lotus Rising provides a rich, fully formed musical environment we will want to visit over and again. - Chuck van Zyl/STAR'S END on 10 January 2019 ; http://www.starsend.org/LotusRising.html FILE INFORMATION ===================== Number of Tracks: 8 Total Duration: 58:53 Total Size: 218 MBs (including scan, m3u, spectrums, and txt) Parity Archive: Yes, 7% Ripped By: NMR Files Created on: NMR Ripped With: NMR Encoded At: lossless, FLAC / 44.1 KHz ID3 Tags: Yes TXT Created: 31 March 2019 Tracklist ------------------------ 01) Crossing The Great Water 02) Lotus Rising 03) Zazen 04) Opening The Hand Of Thought 05) A Prayer For Tenderness 06) Gateless Gate 07) Mountains Are Mountains, Rivers Are Rivers 08) Homage To The Three Jewels POSTING ===================== Reposting Rules: Please wait at least 48 hours before requesting additional pars or reposting.
