Genre/Influences: Electro-ambient, cinematographic.
Background/Info: Aeon Waves is an Indian producer (cf. Kanishk Budhori) who joined the Mindtrick Records roster to add some variety. Aeon Waves seems to be a familiar name in some ambient areas, but I guess it’s a new name for a lot of other music lovers. This EP reveals 3 tracks plus 1 remix.
Content: Aeon Waves is far away from the familiar IDM-driven music released on Mindtrick although the label also has a fascination for rhythmic electro-ambient music. Aeon Waves moves into pure cinematographic experiences.
It definitely sounds ambient-like and the work is strongly characterized by dreamy sound treatments. I can’t say that you can hear this is music from a different culture, but it definitely has something apart from our European format.
The remix of the title song was made by Delete, which reworked the original version adding a slow cadence and some intriguing Russian samplings.
+ + + : The global sound atmospheres running throughout this work are absolutely phenomenal. The dreamy sound waves feel like a caress, but still have this kind of magic imagery appeal. This is the right music for a film. The title song is a fascinating experience, which features dense and beautiful parts, and also a delicate guitar-like sound. The remix by Delete is another great part of the work.
– – – : This EP is not exactly the kind of work that will make you dance, but it will bring you prosperity and relaxation. This is a somewhat different work released by Mindtrick Records so the label followers will maybe not be convinced.
Conclusion: “The Place Where Stars Choir” is a beautiful electro-ambient production and feels like moving back to the essence of this genre.
Best songs: “The Place Where Stars Choir”, ““The Place Where Stars Choir – Delete Remix”.
