Between Interval — Autumn Continent
(Spotted Peccary SPM-1602, 2006, CD)
by Peter Thelen, Published 2007-03-01
This is one of those discs one could play on endless repeat for days on end and just flow with it. It doesn’t demand anything from the listener, but instead slowly overtakes the psyche and guides the experience. A step forward from last year’s Secret Observatory, there are no sharp edges here, no boundaries; everything flows together like a stream of musical consciousness. Headphones on, eyes closed. These images are dreamlike and seductive, flowing in and out like waves on the shore of a slow-motion journey down the subconscious spiral, like warm breath on a cold night in a vast and mysterious ocean. Then, suddenly all is still; a portal into a new world has been traversed, and from out of the darkness arises a repetitive rhythm, and with it a repeating omnipresent melody above it that states its case in bold repetition and then fades away into the distance. All is still again; it was only a dream, and we find ourselves again back on the spiral moving deeper into the unknown. Before long and with little forewarning, pulses of energy are shooting back and forth across the midnight sky, while rhythms and melody stir the currents that engulf the soul. Beyond another vast dronescape, and through subtle waves of fog we finally reach the end, bathed in shimmering fragments of colored light, the dream ending not far from where it all began. This is the good stuff, folks!
