3 stars Traditional releases from Vidna Obmana are along the lines of Brian Eno, Harold Budd and Steve Roach's organic and lenghty electronic soundscapes. Written with special guests, Dark Sanctuary involved in subquatic droning ambient vibes but it includes some delicate atmospheric jazzy touches and acosutic exoticism. The textural ambiences are floating in deep, serene spaces, bringing to the fore a religious, highly spiritual feeling. It opens with the calm, pacific electronic jazzy "infinity" before, then carries on the austere, lugubrious droning "Lamentation" and the nocturnal-ceremonial-errie The first Coil with its cosmic synth drones covered by detached, moving flute lines and crystal-like noises. The profound Isolates is an abstract, luminous electronic dronescape with long sustained synth chords and minimal-waves. The fragmented Dome is an other nocturnal atmopheric soundscape punctuated by guitar sound manipulations and deep echoes. Flame closes the album with a moody-minimal piece for an amalgame of static ambiences, delicate guitar tones. Quiet a nice work with lot of colourful drones, evocative silences and sidereal ouvertures. Recommended for fans of impressionist-iconic ambient music.
