Genre/Influences: Cinematographic, Dark-Ambient.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Italian female artist Martina Betti strikes back with the second opus of her sonic brainchild Shedir. The album was released three years after “Falling Time” (2017).

Content: The new work sounds in the continuation of the previous album; a dark and evasive voyage! The numerous field recordings together with the dark sound treatments create an abyssal feeling. The album features 8 songs, which are progressively built up creating an illusion of mystery.

+ + + : I’m still convinced Shedir has something apart from the ‘classical’ artists in this music genre. It’s a dark trip throughout imaginary fields, but which also has something deeply relaxing. The abyssal sensation perfectly symbolizes the contrast between reverie and angst. It’s a kind of sonic apnea, which just as for “Falling Time” has been masterly illustrated by the front cover of the album.  

– – – : Compared to the debut album I can’t say that there’s an important evolution in sound and production. Some passages could be a little bit more elaborated and varied.

Conclusion: Darkness can be relaxing and that’s precisely what Shedir demonstrates at “Finite Infinity”.

Best songs: “Before The Last Light Is Blown”, “A Cosmic Game”.

Rate: (7).
