øjeRum - Støvfald [Sound In Silence 086]

Another fresh one put out on the circuit via the Greek imprint Sound In Silence on December 13th, 2k21 is øjeRum's "Støvfald", the follow up to the Copenhagen / Denmark-based artists 2019 album release "Alting Falder | Samme Rum" on the label. Described as DarkAmbient by the accompanying press release sheet the two long-form compositions on this lomgplayer - "Skybrud" and "Aftenrøde" - are both evolving over a period of 30 minutes respectively, providing an hour long journey into the realm of beautiful, longing and ever meandering melancholia with the opening A-side weighing in a rather solemn and festive feel triggered by angelic harmonies, touching choir illusions and a steady, slowly pulsating swell of all-embracing pads and layers floating beyond space, time or any kind of dimensionality whereas the flipside pairs a brooding, somehwat ominous and foreboding foundation of a somewhat droning nature with a chiming, yet washed out and slightly off-kilter five tone motif, looped and repeated in minimal, partially fluttering variations to please and enchant both true Ambient heads and connaisseurs of Deep Listening Music with a calming, truely peaceful effect. Most excellent.
