Ben Rath - Anything Is Possible [Sound In Silence 051]

Put on the circuit via the Greek Sound In Silence-label only recently is "Anything Is Possible", the second album produced for the imprint by Manchester's prolific Ben Rath. Opening the 43 minutes journey with "It Was Always Inside" Ben Rath presents us with some of the deepest, most fragile Ambient pads ever arranged, his "Flow Of Creation" follows up on a similar path for lovers of genre classicisms whilst "Innate Value" provides a slow moving, yet distinct Piano motif and blurred string chords and "All Part Of One" weighs in a little more melancholia for rainy autumnal afternoons. Turning into "Sacred" things Ben Rath's music becomes solemn and maestoso for sure, expressing "Joy" sees him introduce a frolicking, multi-layered melodic approach, "Give Up Trying" gets into slightly off-kilter distortions without stepping away from the overall Ambient feel provided on the album and the final title track "Anything Is Possible" goes all in when it comes to beautiful sonic haze, near static movements and an overall feel of time extended, stretched to very max, emulating a warm, organic eternity that is comforting the listeners brain for now and ever.
