Being Of Light

// June 28th, 2017 // Comments Off on Being Of Light // Electronic

Seasoned veterans of the ambient and deep-experiential electronic music, Howard Givens and Craig Padilla return to their soul-searching quest for expressing a symbiosis of music and contemplative self-examination and enlightenment with their new studio release BEING OF LIGHT. This latest work, comprised of four tracks, one of which approaches long-form in style, conveys even more than with their previous highly-regarded LIFE FLOWS WATER release, their interest in harmonic color and dense viscous texture, extracted from an expansive palette of electronic and acoustic instruments and elements. Similar to that prior work though, is their intention to solidify a connection between the inner being within all of us and the abstract expression of the state of awareness that comes through discovery of that pure essence. This new release is a topology of energy rather than physical environment, emphasizing a more visceral enveloping experience. BEING OF LIGHT is single point of light, solitary and self-aware, yet melded into the sum of all light, complete in the totality of one existence.

The Edge Of A Fairytale

// May 2nd, 2017 // 2 Comments » // Electronic

The Edge of a Fairytale, the first new music from Between Interval since 2006s Autumn Continent, delivers eleven deep and powerful soundscapes characrtarized by mystery and wonder, and inspired by questions that have obsessed humans throughout the ages. Stefan Strand, Between Intervals sole creative force, explains, Curiosity about the origin of life, the history of mankind and our universe is a classic theme, and I felt that I had finally reached a point where I needed to let it strongly influence my music. Strand elaborates, There are many religions and beliefs in this world. There are stories and tales that are thousands of years old about mythological characters, creatures and places. To me, letting these tellings influence our lives, without knowing the truthfulness behind them, means that were living on the edge of a fairytale between the known and unknown. Indeed, the deep, rich and mystifying sound that resides on The Edge of a Fairytale has a somewhat dark point of view. However it is not a darkness of evil, but rather one that dwells within the uncharted realms between truth and fiction; a darkness representing an unknown that we travel through while always optimistic that there is light or enlightenment to be found somewhere ahead. With all three previous releases finding their way into Amazons top 10 lists for 2005, 2006 and 2007, Between Interval is already considered crucial must-have listening by both critics and fans alike, and now The Edge of a Fairytale proves without a doubt that Stefan Strand is an ambient electronic virtuoso, and that Between Interval is most certainly one of the mainstays of the genre. TRACK LISTING 1. Delta Capricorni (6:35) 2. The Great Void (7:00) 3. Minotaur’s Lair (4:27) 4. Pillars of Creation (3:58) 5. Three Years Ago (7:23) 6. Atlantis Lost (4:59) 7. Eden in Shadows (6:55) 8. Purgatory (1:47) 9. Sea of Darkness (4:01) 10. Leviathan (11:15) 11. Portals in Time (4:16)

Secret Observatory

// April 20th, 2017 // 3 Comments » // Electronic

Four long-form mixes of timeless dimensionless atmospheres, traverse the abyss of space, seeking – and finding – glimpses of other, distant worlds. Through a powerful imaginary telescope comprised of delicate harmonics, sublime electronic tonalities, and deep space atmospherics, trance-electronic composer Between Interval searches the skies, discovering beauty and darkness throughout, and revealing with real purpose the co-existence of the past, present, and the future.”Atmospheric” hardly seems adequate to describe the fascinating aural architecture revealed on Secret Observatory, the first recording on a U.S. label from Stefan Jönsson, the Swedish producer whose cryptic public ID is Between Interval. It’s an unhurried, deeply reverberating, edge-of-the-universe opus that resides well beyond the gravitational pull of what we know as music or traditional composition. An absorbing work of slowly evolving sound design, it resembles what Tangerine Dream might have given us in their Phaedra era had 21st-century studio technology been within their reach. Jönsson’s palette is wholly, splendidly electronic (not a note of percussion to be heard), and he sustains a nonjarring, deep-megahertz ambiance throughout the disc’s 56 minutes as he transports listeners to the far fringes of deepest space. The result is an audio sojourn that is mysterious and wondrous, with a faint hint of tension that gradually translates into a state of cautious awe. Space winds, subsonic rumblings, distant pulsars, brief celestial voicings, eternal darkness pierced by gleaming shards of illumination–Jönsson treats all of these familiar space-music cues to sophisticated interpretations and judiciously weaves them into a floating, Voyager-like audio excursion for the mind. Not as caressing as most Jonn Serrie recordings; not as foreboding as some works by Steve Roach or Michael Stearns. Think of it as an audio documentary of how humans imagine deep space might actually sound. Worth a listen if you’re a serious space-music fan. –Terry Wood
