The press release declares this to be “The first ‘New Age’ record” - if that’s true then it’s a pretty important musical document, and if it isn’t then it’s certainly among the first of its kind. In it, Californian hippie-visionary Iasos constructs a series of calm, spiritual synth passages, some of which claim in the sleeve notes to have some kind of healing power - ‘Crystal Petals’ is “designed to raise one’s frequencies up into the realms of Perfection. The ‘crystal’ tones especially activate the crown chakra”, whereas ‘The Bubble Massage’ (literally five minutes of bubble noises) is “a New Age healing technique based on sound...will act to soothe the nervous system, purify the feelings, and transmute impurities into Perfection”, which I’m sure you will all agree is very useful.
The music is very much what you would expect from a new age synth record, lots of relaxed, bubbling arpeggios, smooth swelling drones and celestial twinkles. Fans of stuff like JD Emmanuel or Food Pyramid will get totally blissed out by the heavenly tones and steady compositions on this record. It takes silence and isolation to best appreciate the depth and detail of the sounds here, but if you wait until you’ve got the house to yourself, light up some candles (and maybe something else if you’re that way inclined) and let yourself slip into the silky blackness of Iasos’s sonic space, I expect you’ll feel better afterwards.
