Welcome to a soft, moody piece set in the forests of Crackling Sound Texture. The richness of electronic sound fills the void with all sorts of exotic little details. Look for piano drops, for hand drums and for those countless slivers of sound arising left and right.
As the synths rise slowly but surely, sweeping melodies emerge. Imagination is invited for a ride among the stars, aboard a dashing spacecraft. It’s a song about timing and atmosphere. It excels in both. A neon dawn indeed.
Imagine deserted roads getting lost between misty hills. From above, a lonely car is like the sun among the clouds. Somewhere, a song is playing. A voice descends from the cold heavens. The sound flows like tame rivers.
A song to float on. To travel, to let go, to dream, to calm down, to disconnect, to imagine on.
Also, this is one of those cases where the remix is clearly better than the original (this is, of course, a subjective opinion).
Wisdom finds all sorts of ways to trickle through society. Albeit soothing and dreamy, this song’s slow rhythm is full of intent. The singer’s soft voice is precisely what these words of awakening need to be carried on.
Sweetness drips from every vibration of this delicate gem of a song. It’s a soul-healing lullaby blessed with a beautiful, gentle voice and a sacred atmosphere.
As a bonus, the cover of the EP this melody is from is a perfect match for such art.
Contrasting dark-neon undertones with Kristy Thirsk’s angelic vocals, this passionate song’s lyrics are brimming with meanings just waiting to be explored. If acidic, electrifying love would have a sound, this would be it. It’s a sinuous song, bestowed with bountiful, sweeping waves of deep digital sound.
“What’s up, song?”
“Well, you know, thumping along, building some awesome atmosphere, adding a trumpet here, a voice there.”
“I like what I’m hearing! Wanna hang out?”
“Sure, just get some good listening gear, ayt?”
You’ve just landed on planet chill. Welcome. Now close your eyes.
This is as much a song as it is an experience. Of course, everything we live is an experience. But there is a range of intensity to every experience, and a range of senses to be involved in it. This piece shows music at its best as an experience enhancer.
Let your eardrums be massaged by soft percussion as your consciousness floats on gentle winds of sound.
This is when the ineffable comes on as sound, as echoes from an abyss where technology has finally fused with spirituality in a mystic dance that cannot yet be imagined. Sometimes an artist manages to travel back in time, reaching that future from where little can be brought back other than these snaking synths, creeping choirs, monolithic bass lines and the lost electronic voices of ascending civilizations.
Slow down, lay back and close your eyes. Let yourself be moved by the soft yet willful vibrations brought to you by the beautiful composition of Greek mastermind, MIKTEK. This is for those evenings spent sunken in a comfy couch or armchair, eardrums spellbound by the caress of musical magic.
You can listen to the melody for free, in good quality, on BandCamp, which is one of the best websites when it comes to supporting artists. You can also purchase the song (or album) from this same location. And in case you’re wondering, yes, I did purchase MIKTEK’s album :).
