Book Of Air - Vvolk [Sub Rosa 413 Promo]

Recently put on the circuit via the Belgium-based Sub Rosa-imprint is "Vvolk", the second full album release by the conceptual project Book Of Air which is not necessarily comprised of the same musicians / producers in every release given that the first album was performed by a quintet whilst the recent longplay piece sees a whole bunch of eighteen - 18 !!! - performers contributing to the two 24+ minutes tunes found on here entitled "Lente > Zomer" and "Herfst > Winter". Musically exploring and investigating the slow tempo and invisible motion of nature we'll find the group of musicians, most of which rooted in improvisation as well as Jazz and Classical Music, bringing on two seemingly endless streams of warm, highly organic and well-floating Ambient structures incorporating certain characteristic elements of Post-PostRock and echoes of so-called Indietronics which - altogether - can be filed under the genre flag of PopAmbient, a term well-known to and highly appreciated by the friends and followers of Cologne's electronic music staple Kompakt and their several sub- and sister divisions. If this term rings a bell, you're well likely to add "Vvolk" to your collection in the near future as well. At least that's what we presume.
