Comment: The Serb Igor Jovanovic aka Lezet has been a musical hero within the webaudio/netaudio world with his 68 albums for almost 10 years. Indeed, the amount of the issues is immense and only such artists as Buben, The Implicit Order, Cousin Silas, Cagey House/Dave Keifer and Wings Of An Angel can compete with him in this regard. Of course, music is not a topic for competition (only some decayed forms of it like the Eurovision Contest are subject of it). Lezet`s music has been a state of art, a sort of it. He has issued music on such great imprints as Dog Eared Records, Clinical Archives, Sirona-Records. SuRRism-Phonoethics, Buddhist On Fire, PICPACK among others. Aether is a short-running, 3-notch issue under Argentinian imprint Kermesse Records consisting of a simplistic structure at first sight. Indeed, I have to accentuate for once more – at first sight. In truth, those cello-alike major and minor chords have been managed in the way to conjure up enough emotions, fantasy depictions from one`s mind, and awe towards something/someone. One cannot deny its overwhelming touch and impression confluencing at a crossroad of electro-acoustic, minimalism, drone, and post-classical music. In spite of the tags it is primary to perceive all the shades and penumbras of the whole. For instance, one can discern attractive loops and iterative patterns as if running due to inertia and then, at a time it will be jettisoned for impulsive chords and structures. It is one of the best issues in the list of the best albums of 2016. The cover art is painted by (another musician) Jared C. Balogh.
