Mixing up various forms of electronic music, e.g. dark-flavored ambient dub, noir-ish electronica, beat-oriented space music and melodic yet still atmospheric soundscapes, the duo that call themselves Soundician have fashioned music that is imminently listenable yet also challenging enough so as to not be merely the latest ear candy…I’m willing to bet that if you listen to even a few minutes of their music, you’ll want to either download it all or else ask for a CD-R. If you’re a fan of spacy yet melodic dub, ambient noir (on the lighter side of dark) with sensual beats, or just a lover of way cool EM, you’re gonna love Soundician.
In all, this is not that easy music, but keep in mind that magic starts to work as you give this disc some more spins. Currently, the band has remastered the first album.
Soundician’s debut is a charming record of inspired and inspirational music, clearly a labour of love and the result of a great admiration of retro-ambient music.
…elements of minimalism, space music, trip hop and experimental music. it is electronic and it is deep… quite literally, inviting listeners to enter their journey and their world as they try to bring sense to it. The music does that. It is relaxing eclectica and listeners entering their soundworld are free to roam or to follow. This is a worthy adventure and a viable candidate for top newcomer.
