Genre/Influences: Dark-Cinematographic.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Pavlo Storonskyi is a Ukrainian artist living in Warsaw (Poland). “Exo” is his third full length album and the first one in six years; his previous work being devoted to IDM and released on the defunct Tympanik Audio label.

Content: I didn’t exactly expect Tineidae getting signed on Cryo Chamber, but once you’re listening to “Exo” you rapidly see the link. This work is a well-crafted and overwhelming Cinematographic experience wherein dark reverie and space-like sound treatments are coming together. Some passages feel a bit like improvised while others have been accomplished with upcoming Electronic sequences. The work is filled with numerous little details and sound effects.

+ + + : I’m not affirming “Exo” sounds as a true sound reconversion, but Tineidae definitely reveals a different side of its artistic expression. The production was impressive and mainly carried by overwhelming sound treatments joined by great strings and astral effects. The songs have been meticulously constructed and achieved with analogue effects. There also is a strong visual appeal emerging at the surface. This is detailed Dark-Cinematographic composition featuring multiple outstanding tracks.

– – – : I can imagine some fans of the early work will be a little disappointed discovering an album totally devoted to Cinematographic music.

Conclusion: Tineidae is one of those projects I’ll always link with the great Tympanik audio, which is a label I’m definitely missing. But this is another time and still another Tineidae, which however remains fascinating!

Best songs: “Metal Claws”, “Battle Scars”, “Blacklight Trail”, “Patterns In The Sky”, “Reconnection”.

Rate: (8½).
