Maria W Horn - Epistasis [Hallow Ground Promo]

Released via the ever busy Hallow Ground label on October 25th, 2k19 is "Epistasis", the second fully fledged artist album album by Swedish composer Maria W Horn. Channeling her wide-ranged influences from Experimental Music to Black Metal within four pieces originally commissioned for a multi-channel audiovisual piece and mixed down for a proper album context the journey starts with "Interlocked Cycles I", a take on beautiful, (Neo)Classical-infused piano minimalism and decent, low end-focused background drones followed by the title track "Epistasis" which brings on an intense, slightly haunting variation of solemn, ritualistic Ambient paying homage to Synth and Cosmic greats like Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream at the same time. With "Konvektion" Maria W Horn harks back to the scientific, stripped down approach of early electronic music composition whilst emulating the emotional intensity of slow church organ chord progressions with most minimalist, yet classy Ambient methods before the concluding cut "Interlocking Cycles II" closes the longplay cycle with more (Neo)Classical piano beauty stretched out over the course of nearly 10 minutes.
