Touching ambient soundscapes for inner contemplation.
Xvarr - Echoes Of Time
The London-based synth experimentalist Xvarr returns with Echoes Of Time, a spacious release that channels elements of Berlin-school kosmische into ambience and serenity. Each of these four tracks is a world unto its own. The EP begins with the highlight, "She Healed Him In Her Sleep," where majestic synths might bring you into a drowsy state. The piece shines with tranquility, joy and melancholy. It nicely contrasts with "Past Masters," where percussion leads us somewhere that feels more physical.
Echoes Of Time nods to ambient masters without evoking a particular era. Instead, it takes a universal approach, perfect for inward contemplation. It's a soundtrack for walks in the forest or driving in the mountains.
