- Towards the Blue Peninsula by Keith Berry
1 review. Write a review for us »
Here's a rare treat from veteran ambient powerhouse Keith Berry, which the press release says he has "has moved away from the computer-based compositions of 'The Ear That was sold...' utilizing Akira Rabelais's Argeiphöntes Lyre software to something a bit more windswept perhaps or at times aquatic and organic sounding", but that technical stuff goes way over my head most of the time. It's a completely captivating collection of drones on a beautifully packaged CD, with submerged melodies poke out from soft pillows of static in languorous repeating patterns, dense subtly shifting chords blurred into shimmering clouds of tone.
It's mostly beautiful, calming music, grandiose in an almost spiritual way, although towards the end things take a turn for the sinister and discordant, somewhat briefly. I can't find a track list and the tracks run into one another but it is split into distinct sections. All in all a weighty but floaty treat.
