Description

Following the success of 2013's The Ambient Zone, ("an excellent compilation from the always interesting Just Music label" The Sunday Times) this is the Just Music's second beautiful journey into the immersive world of ambient electronica.

The album features brand new tracks created exclusively for the label in response to a beautiful series of carefully selected photo images, each Artist responding to the atmosphere of the photo, each translating the feelings evoked in them by the image into an exquisite and fascinating piece of musical ambience.

The journey opens with the cinematic elegance of Digitonal's Sentinel, flowing mesmerically on to Afterhere's captivating On Wings, from there meandering into the sultry beauty of Chris Coco's New Age Sunrise. The dreamy piano of Jon Hopkins' bewitching Autumn Hill then takes its hold, closely followed by the dark mystery of Sam Thomas's Seeing or Agreeing. A pivotal point in the album is Loner's My Kingdom, Your Sunset with its enigmatic vocals, after which Echaskech's deep and emotionally resonant Caeleste and the tranquility of Xspance's The Last Sunrise roll hypnotically on into the idiosyncratic keys of Opdot's Piano Monody, the gentle beauty of Marconi Union's Transient and finally, the beautiful last two tunes, Laki Mera's mysterious Talk To Me and the acoustic innocence of Dan Arborise's Paths. The album is mixed by Chris Coco.

The serene and elegant journey is then at an end, leaving the listener with the desire to listen all over again.
