Failure can now be celebrated with this paradoxical hymn that manages to be both catchy and apathic. The lyrics are somewhere at a crossroads between humor and despair, surrender and pessimism, with a side-dish of sarcasm. And they’re being delivered with the perfect voice and intonation.
A flute floats on the river of violin. Levitating has never been so easy.
Flute master Carlos Nakai’s life work is ample, to say the least. Seek it out.
Catchy hooks and a wavy bassline do a great job of delivering this melody’s passionate vocals. Reverb plays an important role here, and is used with great skill both on the vocals and for building some monolithic bass constructions towards the end of the song.
Solid beat and energizing soundscapes power this mental dancefloor gem. This goes out to powerful new beginnings and amazing journeys. Take that first step, the adventure begins now.
Replay-abuse warning. Weaving a deep bass line with reverbed synths, it’s hard to stay still when stuff like this is blasting from the speakers. Get ready for take-off!
Here’s a strong, neo-folk pack of energy straight outta Valhalla. I don’t know what’s the name of the female singer, but her chanting is a perfect match for the solemn male choirs. A piece to march on through “bad” weather.
This original composition showcases a unique fusion between air instruments and electronic orchestration. It is Digitonal’s trademark sound, coming from one of the earliest releases of this ambient, neo-classical project.
This melody builds around a male sample (which says something in a language not known to me), combining synthetized guitars with echoing keyboards and dripping percussion. It is a journey song with many soundscapes; psybient at its finest.
In Norse mythology, Ginnungagap (“gaping abyss”, “yawning void”) is the primordial void, mentioned in the Gylfaginning, the Eddaic text recording Norse cosmogony.
Well, for a song about the primordial void, this one is pretty delicate and happy. The metalhead in me says that a song called so would have worked better from the pagan black metal scene. But then my spiritual side interjects and says: “but who says the void is dark, or violent?”. Indeed, Eastern philosophies such as Buddhism see the void in a much more mature way.
The metalhead in me is wrong and this song is a beautiful celebration of the importance of the primordial void. Leave your senses behind, save perhaps for hearing and let this song show you.
A profoundly moving song, Bliss soothes the tired mind and calms the restless soul. Peaceful music surrounds healing voices – a melody worthy of a life’s soundtrack.
