Genre/Influences: Cinematographic, Ambient-Electro.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Ghosts In Mirrors is a solo-project driven by Koen Buytaert. This Belgian musician together with his brother is also involved with The Roswell Incident. This album is a live recording and the fourth chapter in the Littl’Antenna series.

Content: The live recording happened in 2018 and features 2 long duration pieces. The songs have been progressively built up, clearly evoking a Cinematographic composition. The second song sounds a little bit darker while still featuring a somewhat Ritual-like atmosphere. There’s a part of mystery in the atmospheres hanging over the work.

+ + + : This project sounds different to The Roswell Incident. There’s no explicit link with the Berlin School, but a more pronounced and elaborated Soundtrack appeal. I especially like the dark sphere recovering both cuts, but especially “The Thought Was Missing”. This song is progressively evolving till reaching a kind of anguishing Ritual passage being the apotheosis of the work. And there’s a certain climax at the opening piece, which comes to an end with a fascinating flute-like noise.

– – – : I just regret both climaxes at the end of each track are pretty short.

Conclusion: “Cold Dust” definitely appears to be a fascinating experience in the Ambient-Electro genre, which goes a step further than most projects in the genre. This is more personal and creative!

Best songs: “The Thought Was Missing”, “Why Is Irrelevant”.

Rate: (8).
