ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Album description and reviews: (for more information and sound clips: www.resonatingearth.com)

This third collaboration between Human Metronome and 33 Tetragammon has resulted in their deepest album so far. The album itself consists of a journey that can best be experienced when the soundscapes are listened to in the order they are presented. Sometimes this music can penetrate into the deeper, hidden realms of consciousness: Surely it is not for the faint hearted. But the rewards can be quite substantial! Which ancient relics will you excavate from the well of your psyche? And which ones will be useful in our present day and age?

Reviews:

Sonic Curiosity:

This release from 2010 offers 73 minutes of atmospheric soundscapes.

Not unlike the previous release, this album exemplifies heightened ambience. Electronics are utilized in subdued fashion to establish very fragile harmonics that, once they are generated, hang in the air like a tenacious fog.

Tones are generated, then allowed to run free, filling space with their ephemeral definition. Variations occur with sneaky regularity, barely observed as the tuneage progresses in its homogeneous constitution.

Dreamy flutes breathe delicate embellishment into the flowing tones. While these threads are sometimes prominent, they often are submerged in the overall drone, becoming a subliminal effect.

A muted grinding presence seems to churn just beneath the music's surface, triggering ancestral emotional responses from a primordial age.

These compositions are steady state entities, crafted to act as mood enhancers that will reduce stress and open the mind to contemplative pursuits. © 2010 Matt Howarth. All rights reserved.

Sonic Immersion review of "Universal Ripples"
"Universal Ripples" is the third collaboration between Dutch musicians Human Metronome (aka Eelke van Hoof) and 33 Tetragammon (aka Wasili Papadopoulos).
According to the musicians, the outcome is their deepest album so far, as the previous releases sounded lighter. It consists of an intense journey, best experienced when immersing the five uninterrupted soundscapes in one go and in the order they are presented.

The music, presented in five "Phase", contains glimpses of Robert Rich and Steve Roach, as it smoothly roams in spacious caverns of textural ambiences with an organic edge.

In addition, I second listening and experiencing the full impact of the music is something special, as the expansive dronescapes, field recordings, bamboo flute, percussion and the sound of singing bowls gradually take you on an introspective trip.
This all in an attempt to connect the listener to the core of his or her inner-self, as sometimes the music can penetrate into the deeper, hidden realms of consciousness. Yeah, right.

To me, these immersive and well-constructed sonic worlds most of all are resonating and slow morphing ambient textures, the outcome being a 73-minute breathing space of soft whirling elements.

All in all, "Universal Ripples" is a work of art meant for profound and focussed listening. Its impact is emphasized due to eye for detail and the excellent, precise mastering.
Well done, guys!
