Transtilla - Transtilla II [Midira Records 073]

Not even a year after the first incarnation of their conjunctional Transtilla project Anne-Chris Bakker and Romke Kleefstra are back with "Transtilla II", the sophomore longplay piece which has been released via Midira Records on December 13th, 2k19. Spanning four tracks and a total of 45 minutes runtime the album opens with "Achrome", a droning, ever so slightly moving Ambient affair sporting an unusually light and heavenly mood for a project connected to the experimental music scene whereas the subsequent "Askvoll" indulges in a low-end heavy stream of pure classic, time dissolving Ambient goodness. Furthermore the "Assemblage 2008" introduces the first chiming harmonic motifs to the sonic world explored by the duo before the concluding cut "Valavond Aan Concourslaan" presents an intense, piercing and defo noisier approach towards the Ambient genre, working its way towards a climax that finally never provides full relief. Interesting.
