Background/Info: Eva|3 is a British solo-project driven by Paul Lavigne. After a long hiatus, Eva|3 struck back releasing several EP’s and this new full length album composed with the famous analogue Buchla synthesizer.
Content: “A World Within” is mixing Ambient- and Minimal Electro. The tracks are instrumentals, which could have been composed as a movie- or documentary soundtrack. The tracks are progressively built up, which now and then leads toward a true apotheosis.
+ + + : This album is progressively built up; tracklist and songs properly speaking are moving towards an apotheosis. This effect comes mainly through on the second part of the title track. I like the icy sound sequences and global atmosphere, which sometimes seem to announce a nearby disaster. The work also has an intimate sensation. The main strength of the project however remains the magic of the analogue sound treatments, which makes the production pretty unique.
– – – : I experienced some of the debut tracks as a little hesitant while the very last track is a bit too long, becoming monotonous.
Conclusion: Pure minimalism featuring a mix of alluring compositions and a few less inspired passages.
Best songs: “A World Within – Part 2” “A World within – Part 1”, “Lost”.
