Totuls - Open Held Doors (2014)



/Modern classical, Ambient pop, Electro-acoustic, Neoclassical, Crossover, Dark ambient, Illbient, Breakcore, Electro-acoustic/ 

Comment: actually it is a quite puzzling enterprise to describe this album of 10 tracks coming in at 32 minutes. The general point of the issue is to create a tension between wispy, fragile upper layers and loosely rhythmical inferior sequences. More profoundly, the former of them is remarkably more differentiated due to airy piano chords which used to extend and hover after being tapped out. John Winston Richards also provides slightly sinister synth progressions interwoven with eerie electro-acoustic manipulation and buried noisy bits and murky echoes and mid-range buzzing sounds. There are also wispy yet angelic vowel fabrics giving it a more spaced-out approach and touch. If to regard the rhythm based pads it used to mainly rotate around twisted drum and bass/jungle alike bounces. In a word, it is a crossed issue of different yet not very distant genres resulting in exciting combinations of sound and initial premises. The issue is a part of  PIR▲.MD Records, a Mexico based record label.
