Orroin Daydream`s 10-track issue A Distant
Veil is a case of exuberant layers within catchy noises and fluctuating
pulsating ambience coated with hisses and microscopic sounds (of course, all of
that it is made in a deliberate way). Emotionally it is at times restrained and
neutral, at times ready to turn into more ominous compartments saturated with
echoes, specters and monochromic gothic fictions. In any cases, the whole
stimulates the listener`s brain to fantasy and create pictures in her/his head.
To understand the purpose it is quite trivial but it is the very goal ascribed
to music. The Belgium-residing artist`s music could be compared with the likes
of Tim Hecker (especially the Canadian musician`s first albums where boreal-related
fictions were more depicted than on his later issues) and Vladislav Delay (also
the artist coming from the northern hemisphere, more concretely from Finland)
because of depicting a trudge across the pathway of (sub) dub-inflected wobbles
and electro-acoustic bangles. In a word, the result is an outstanding notch
within the realm of holophonic poetry getting a place in the list of the best
albums of 2015. Being related to the Halloween date by the way.
