about

On the duo’s second official full­length proper their art of creating complex sonic worlds truly shines. The album, appropriately titled “Walking Through”, indeed resembles a soundtrack for a day­long exploration of an imaginary national park in all its diversity – forest, rivers and creeks, fields and meadows, abandoned industrial zone, and even a visit to a busy trade fair. Richly textural, organically synthetic, generously spiced by multilayered field recordings, with occasional live instrumentation (cellos and flutes) and traces of vocals, it’s a true cinematic feast for the ears and imagination.

Subtle electronic pulses and minimalistic percussive work are delicately brought in and out to keep the listener awake; synth pads are delicate and lulling, but never pretty or overwhelmingly grandiose. The mood, the density of sonic fibre and the light/darkness ratio is constantly changing, making the 84 minute­long trip a consistent, but never a dull listen – sometimes welcoming, sometimes challenging – rounded off with two fantastic long­form highlights:
an epic, psychedelically transporting 19­minute “Naiads”
and calming “The Black Crown”, gently returning the listener back to ordinary life, leaving a lingering memory of a day spent off the beaten track.

Collector's edition double-cd album "Walking Through" contains:
- 10 tracks full-length album 84 min. long
- 4 video works in HD by different directors
- unique cover design
