Three widescreen trips from the studio of Berllioz, one of foremost exponents of modular synthesis. Each track uses space and depth to conjure a refined and enveloping atmosphere. The jazzy percussion and drizzly chords of ‘Mo Orea’ bring to mind a clandestine bar in a film noir.
The chatter and hubbub on ‘Faka Urea’ is brighter, matching the steppy groove. Finally, ‘Aphetidae’ is an epic, taking in a massive walking bassline, orchestral swells and an extended ambient.
