INSECTS (2013 )
The UK-duo Soundician have tried something new on their concept-album “Insects”, a 28-minute Ep with nine interweaving pieces tracks dedicated to invertebrates carrying wings.
The continuous track, meant to be played and listened to as a whole, has an overall lush sound design and uncomplicated character, nicely imagining a world of wonder, airy and lightness. The addition of sequencing, tabla-percussion and a tweaked solo-voice in the middle of the composition is also uncommon for Soundician’s eclectic music, taking on an atmospheric and more accessible shape here. I suggest listening with headphones to get the full scope of this fascinating recording.
