Born of a concept that music should be felt as much as heard, Black Ether has been captivating listeners since 2001 with some of the most emotive electronic music ever produced. Like tendrils of long forgotten dreams, BE moves people in ways very few artists can, simultaneously touching on the human and spiritual conditions with a force that can be as soft as a feather, or like a sledge hammer to the brain. Reminiscent of acts like Delirium, Deep Forest and VAST, Black Ether has managed, however, to blaze its own sonic trail with a distinctiveness that speaks "Black Ether". Ethereal ambience, haunting melodies, tribal drums, sensuous vocals, soaring guitars and keyboard solos and a healthy dose of creative brilliance culminates in a sound that is timeless, emotive, and extraordinarily mind blowing. Renaissance of the Primordial continues the musical journey began in Oneness, but with more distinctive world, rock and down tempo textures that elevate the power of the Black Ether sound to even higher levels of aural genius.
In the words of others:
Black Ether...and his music..
Ahhh..you always create this fantasy...a dreamworld...for all to dwell. To me you always fulfill my innermost belief of what music is set out to be...all this nonsense that the real task of music is to describe the world around us..that it is a mirror of the world...and how ugly and emotionless it has become. I truly believe that music shall give us hope...nothing more nothing less....it shall paint pictures of new worlds beyond the horizon....it's the vehicle to transport us to those places ..and each time we return to the world of ours a little less of us comes back with us ...because an ever growing part of our emotions and intellect longs and stays in that dreamworld...which hopefully in due time becomes the only true reality. Or something like this...lol....nevertheless...this is a true description of the music you make!
An incredible amount of spirituality goes into your music, its quite impressive. ............. While listening to this song I feel very peaceful and placid it invokes such tranquility.
present moment conscious
AAH THE ETHEREAL Black ether. mystical muses, angelic choir voices, ambiguous piano chords, pulled laid back beat. very hip, if beatniks were till around today this is what they would be grooving to .i can even snap my fingers to it.
Transcends music and becomes an experience
This piece is truly enveloping. It's not just music, it invokes so much more.
not your garden variety sweet, hallmark sexless angels...but powerful and daunting and fearsome and beautiful creatures of god. They move with the insistence of drumming and sing melodies both human and stringed. Mankind joins them, worshipfully, in imitation, with voice and wind and drum trying to identify with their purpose. The immortal and mortal chorus blend in harmony and intention. In becoming attuned to tha angels, the mortal come into tune with each other.
....this is the stuff of the ambient kings! Wow, what a sumptuous feast for the ears, I'm blown away by its majesty
Elixir of the spirit indeed
Guaranteed to rejuvenate the soul and take you on a mystic journey to places you never even dreamed of
a fantastic melding of different sounds ,patterns, shapes and effects. amazing how you are able to incorporate infectious percussion and rhythmic grooves and still keep that hypnotic ambient feel.
Black Ether is one of my inspirations
Your style is unique and wonderful, a display of individuality that is welcome on this planet of people trying to be alike. Keep making black ether what it is and i will keep listening and loving it.
Thanks from the heart,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
In the past year, Black Ether has provided many hours of listening pleasure for me, and has been instrumental in making it a very memorable year for me, by providing bone chilling inspiration, through enormous amounts of generosity and unparallel talent.
You say this refers to a magical place....
I believe it. Almost all your works are a rip in the fabric of the here and now that we can slip through into another dimension, another reality where magic still is in the air.
man you are good at this
You are soooo good at putting people in a makebelive land with you music. Every song that I have heard of yours just makes you imagine something and gets your mind going.
