about

After a five year break, the Empty Atoms resumes and subtly reshapes the deepspace sound. Spanning a vocabulary of sound that encompasses eight albums, this album uses a syntax that is immediately recognisable to those aquainted. Dreams, surrealism and magic abound in this release. Some pieces request the listener to imagine a scenario- "The Great Thing in the Sky" posits the idea of a large unidentifiable object floating above a skyline, Sean Tan style. A voice is heard remarking upon it, followed by a surreal and glittering sound-piece. "Where We Go There is No Language" uses a Saharan Harp to underpin a night-time desert soundscape. "Inside the Viewfinder" once again evokes the surreal, and a simple doorbell-like chime resonates slowly throughout the piece. "LIght in the Neptunian Desert" paints a desolate and eerie place, far from this world. Faint Church bells toll periodically during some of the pieces, ungrouding the music in a place neither near or far, neither lucid nor dreaming.
