Cremation Liliy (Harbinger Sound, Opal Tapes, Alter etc.) aka Zen Zsigo makes a further departure from his harsher noise/power electronic roots with this double cassette of forlorn, blue ambient and ambient techno. The submerged and dejected ‘October Sails’ drifts beautifully with a slight, delicate sonar techno pulse and sorrowful strings. ‘Coastal Path, If We Were Alone’ utilises avian field recordings and minimalist piano as he takes us on an introspective stroll, looking out to sea and beyond the horizon. ‘The Currents Mislead (Hand Ιn Hand)’ is like melodic 90’s ambient techno - bleached and eroded of its futuristic elements to leave the emotional weight of its core. ‘The Processes and Instruments of Normal People’ feels as though it’s hovering weightlessly as it flutters - like drifting away into deep thought where one momentarily forgets their immediate environment but is pulled out of contemplation by external sounds. ‘Quiet Preparation (Timetable)’ is lush, pensive techno, while the wraithlike ‘Rose Water’ closes the set with ghostly tones that leave apparition like trails as they gently dissolve. Across the album, there’s a real sense of fragility, both sonically and emotionally - it feels as though if you were to reach out and try to grasp Zen’s sounds, they’d shatter into crystal-like dust. This is one of those albums that really feels like the artist is really baring their soul -- communicating emotions that only music can - something tangible and beyond the limits of mere words. If you dig the dreamy ambient side of Janus Shoved and Posh Isolation then you should check this out for sure.
