Genre/Influences: Cinematographic, Ambient-Electro.
Format: Digital, CD, Vinyl.
Background/Info: This is the fourth opus by Interconnected, which is a project driven by Bakis Siros (Parallel worlds) and Ingo Zobel (Drøn).
Content: “Grainophonics” is the fusion between elements of Cinematographic music and pure Ambient. It’s a dark composition carried by icy atmospheres, but still featuring passages with astral sound treatments. I also noticed passages with field recordings.
+ + + : From a pure technical point of view, this work is somewhat reminding Ambient pioneers. The composition has been accomplished by magic analogue sound treatments creating this particular space-like atmosphere. It still is a work characterized by darker parts, which will appeal to lovers of Dark-Ambient.
– – – : “Grainophonics” needs a few listening before you really get into the sound universe of Interconnected. It’s not the most accessible format of Ambient music.
Conclusion: Interconnected is a project that might appeal for demanding ambient lovers; those who want something more and unique.
Best songs: “Harmonic Merging”, “Multilevel”.
