🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Experimental, Ambient.

Format: Digital, CD, Cassette.

Background/Info: Polish project Voices Of The Cosmos strikes back with a new work consisting of live recordings. A few cuts are known from previous studio recordings while there’s also previously unreleased material.

Content: This band reveals a true passion for astronomy which is exposed in every single details from their work. From the sound and titles to the artwork this project sounds like being part of space. They conceive sonic collages which mainly sounds like improvised but always creating the illusion of an astral dimension. Sometimes dark and icy but also totally dreamy this work is quite diversified around the main theme.

+ + + : You can only but immediately perceive the strong and omnipresent astral dimension of the work. There where Ambient pioneers have explored all different facets of this music genre, Voices Of The Cosmos transpose it into a true Experimental style. This is music for fans of sound improvisation but I’ve to admit the used sound canvas of the tracks is absolutely impressive. I’m in for the darker side of the work.

– – – : It remains a true Experimental-Ambient sound which is according to me missing a visual side -especially as this is a live recording.

Conclusion: Space remains a prolific and inspiring ground for Ambient projects and fans.

Best songs: “Geomagnetic Hiss 2”, “Pulsar PSR B0950+08”

Rate: 6½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
