EN

Although Silent Heart is just one track, this album has eight chapters. It starts with dark ambient soundscapes that will be recognized by every fan of the genre. Good, but nothing new.

The samples of anguished voices disturb the ambient atmosphere. The music slowly delves into the mind of the listener, and after twenty minutes there other spheres come upwards. Still dark and atmospheric, but with a lighter piano/synthesizer sound. Apparently, there is some hope for this desolate world. The light in the darkness. At that moment it sounds more meditative than menacing. An all-purpose rain doesn’t wash away the meditative nature of the music, it is an introduction to a slightly different tone. Slowly, the tone gets darker, more melodramatic. This ultimately results in a short silence. And then, sampled voices that are both meditative and weird. Afterwards, the music literally dies away into oblivion. At least until the repeat function works and the cycle begins again.

Hoewel Silent Heart uit één nummer bestaat, heeft dit album acht hoofdstukken. Het start met darkambientsoundscapes die de liefhebber herkent. Goed gebracht, maar niet veel nieuws onder de duistere zon.

De samples van gekwelde stemmen verstoren de ambiente sfeer. De muziek graaft langzaam in het brein van de luisteraar en na ongeveer twintig minuten komen er andere sferen naar boven. Nog steeds donker en sfeervol, maar ook met een wat lichter piano-/synthesizergeluid. Het lijkt een desolate wereld enige hoop te geven. Het licht in de duisternis. Het klinkt op dat moment meer meditatief dan dreigend. Een alles reinigende regenbui wast het meditatieve karakter van de muziek niet weg, het is wel de inleiding tot een iets andere toon. Langzaam wordt die toon weer donkerder, melodramatischer. Dat mondt uiteindelijk uit in een korte stilte om daarna, via gesamplede stemmen, meditatief en bevreemdend tegelijk te klinken. Daarna sterft de muziek letterlijk langzaam weg in vergetelheid. Althans, totdat de herhaalfunctie de cyclus opnieuw laat beginnen.
