Comment: it is an elegant suite of five compositions by Mèryll Ampe whose music used to shift between artificial and organic compartments. In truth, all the artist`s music seems to be produced by using digital software/hardware only, however, the whole is produced in a way to expose it to mellower and warmer sounds as well. So it can be admitted it is something of an unusual sort of digital sound art music of which usually tends to be quite airtight on its own. Although Passing Over chimes in a restraint way the artist seems to have much fun within predetermined borders. More concretely, it is about microscopic noise bits which constitute different kinds of patterns, it is about stereo effects and undulating electronic oscillations which used to travel from one channel to another in a thought-provoking way. Jelly is filled with organically sounding brown noises being turned up and an obviously vocal descended endless drone and all of that is surrounded by electro-acoustic soup (at least resembling such sort of sound though not being this sound technically). Now and then some templates within the tracks are slowed down to an extent where electronic music sounds truly dreamily and otherworldly, at times it is counterpointed by abstract rhythmic structures and digital vapour. Consequently on can say the result is formally and emotionally sustaining to bring interesting sonic elements from within dark corners of electronic music to the surface. Let`s pass over along with it. The outing is a part of the discography of BRUITS.
