We go now to the UK under the ambient drone arena but with a slightly different path. We present now The Essence of Existence, a new digital-only release from UK artist, Akoustik Timbre Frekuency.
Whereas some ambient releases take you on lateral planes, Akoustik Timbre Frekuency presents a journey that sounds predominantly centrifugal or spiral-like. Aside from the unorthodox use of tones, layering and pace, this is one of the many factors that make this release fairly unique.
The Essence of Existence is like a 360 degree feeling similar to descending and ascending within the depths of a Buddhist meditation bell or a wineglass. Indeed the album is very hypnotic and suitable for meditation and even possibly self-hypnosis. Akoustik Tembre Frekuency tends to focus more upon the mid-upper keys though the deep, low tones appear, just not as predominantly.
The listener is taken closer and further away from the center of the middle of the object. It’s a slow, spiral descent with rising and receding layers throughout the path. So, if you are looking for a different trip with your ambient journey and would prefer to just stay in the moment and contemplate existentialism, this might be up your alley.
The Essence of Existence is one long track clocking in at just over 52 minutes.
