4 stars Among the last efforts released by the guitarist and sound researcher Yves Potin, Life-unfolding provides an harmonious and deeply subaquatic-organic soundscaping trip. This collection of extended epics is mainly based on sustained synthesized waves, subtle-crystalline like guitar echoes / almost shredding like guitar solos with a delicate jazzy-esque flavour. The result is in the vein of previous efforts by but reveals new variations and an astonishing-sensual combination of elements, motives, sounds and textures. The musical orchestration seems to flow into deep spaces, dissolving material rules to reach the listener into an unique mind travel, full of reveries and mystical projections. The opening theme embraces a warm spaced out ambience, featuring ethereal synth chords and detached guitar melodies. The album carries on with serene, fragile and charming cosmic atmospheres, multidirectional experiments and majestic guitar melodies which progressively rise from the distance. Life-Unfolding closes the album with a lysergic-entrancing ambient spherical piece. For the spirit and the intimate direction, Life-Unfolding can easily ravish fans of early spacious ambient music by Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Mathias Grassow and a few others. Well recommended.
