Genre/Influences: Dark-ambient, soundscape.
Content: “The Silent Heart” reveals an intriguing sonic adventure throughout numerous ghost-like passages accentuated by sampled voices. The work has been conceived as multiple parts, which cross each other to progressively reach a dark and austere atmosphere characterized by a vision of doom. The work reveals dense and cold sound layers plus multiple experimental treatments and cracking noises.
It’s not exactly what I should call an anguishing enterprise rather than an open-minded ambient work where obscure passages progressively move into a softer and more reverie-like format. It ends in a rather cinematographic approach.
↑↑↑: I like the diversity of the composition, which is more than simple dark-ambient music.
↓↓↓ : It’s pretty entertaining, but definitely not the most exciting work in the genre. Speaking for myself I prefer the debut album.
Conclusion: “The Silent Heart” appears to be a ‘sweet’ dark-ambient work, which sounds like opening a door to softer and more dreamy passages.
