Comment: the Danish producer Søren Nissen Jørgensen has been on the field since the May of 2011 being truly prolific since then. Similarly to his previous issues at Stelheij Søren Nissen Jørgensen is meddling the components of silence and still life, dealing with picturesque glimpses and unhurried progressions in texture and timbre. Piano chords get fleshed out with echoes and minimal chord changes for that are added exquisite orchestrations to be tightly around it going to live their own lives across the pathway to nowhere. But the nowhere is beatific and wondrous something which is strange yet enticing, somehow warm yet immensely superior. The chords are subtle at times getting dilated to the point just changing into water vapour and then merging semalessly into the Sun. The artist is panning the chords over and over to make the shifts within it look like a natural fare for your cerebral lobes. And it fosters well. Even if you would like to get more into the 5-track issue just stare at the cover print which probably will make you dizzy and eventually drugged-out. The world is a little bit better place after listening to this sparse set of 16 minutes. Indeed, the issue makes sense in the year of 2016.
