Comment: this 6-track issue is a mighty, highly fluttering ambient issue produced by Madagascar-rooted French musician Randriambololona Hery. More concretely, Ujjaya`s very broad yet subtle ambient and drone-blended soundscapes are mixed up with ethnic segments – Orient-singing and vowel echoes, didgeridoo-induced hypnosis and ethnic drum and gamelan-based incantations, and on the other side providing some mild techno vibes, bubbling electronic fabrics, spoken word snippets and adding some concrete music elements to the mix. Sometimes his music sounds more amusingly, sometimes more in an abstract way, the milieu is at times brighter, at times starkly desolate. It can be said, the artist has gathered the best elements from the aforementioned genres to create his own idiosyncratic result. By the way, the album  was played for a ballet made by Vanessa Villain, called Subliminal, telling how the man exploit the Earth and how in return nature take her revenge. Mandatory.
