batch of 4 tracks (Seraphic Intonations with the subtitle Memories Of An Ecstatic
Oblivion) is an enchanting progression through dynamic yet
slightly easy-running picturesque guitars and loopy patterns as the
creative algorithm of it beneath the strings. The term "seraphic"
does mean "angelic", "sainty", "cherubic"
by English Thesaurus. Of course, by following the aforementioned
description we cannot reject the name of a genius called Robert Fripp
(King Crimson) and his approach entitled flippertronics. Looped
elliptical patterns to go on while vivid guitar chords and also
full-fledged riffs used to be improvised atop thereby constituting a
magnificent quintessence. On the other side, the moody impression of
the album resembles Penguin Cafe Orchestra which was led by another
outstanding guitar player Simon Jeffes (1949-1997). Additionally to
it during a year I have discovered many great experimental
guitar-based issues from Italy, for example, Gaetano Fontanazza's The
Grandpa Lullabies (Sucu Music), and OOAME's Milanese-Nwas
(Acustronica). And in general, thanks to Italian records like
Nostress, Ephedrina, Sucu Music, and Laverna for purveyance of such intellectual
sort of music. Indeed, the 56-minute gem is a part of the discography
of Laverna. In many senses, it is an example of perfect album because
while listening to it the time as a parameter gets set aside and the
finishing and starting point come together as a symbol of the circle,
a geometrical symbol representing perfection and completeness.
Furthermore, it is an instance of ideal music because of uniting
seamlessly easy listening and artsy intellectual/progressive rock
tendencies. Spirit meets mind. Undoubtedly one of the best (cohesive,
cinematic, expressive, pristine, epic, dynamic, enchanting) outings
in 2018. I would like to imagine myself while listening to it after a
hard day's work in the middle of wildlife somewhere in the middle of
a vast forest and in a hut nearby a vast lake (Great Bear Lake, Great
Slave Lake, Athabasca). It is not surprising because the wildlife is
a face of Divine. Are you able to put this mind(set) down?
