Lionel Marchetti & Decibel - Inland Lake (Le Lac Interieur) [Room40 Promo]

Put out on the circuit via Room40 on January 20th, 2k23 is "Inland Lake (Le Lac Interieur)", the latest two piece collaboration album shaped and conceived by Australian chamber ensemble Decibel in conjunction with French composer Lionel Marchetti. Opening with the title track "Inland Lake (Le Lac Interieur)", recorded over the internet due to pandemic restrictions and later re-arranged by Marchetti, we see glacial Ambient atmospheres paired with wafts of carefully layered, slightly off-kilter string instruments, emerging crystalline sine tones of generally tender, calming and almost brittle nature over the course of almost 36 minutes whereas the subsequent, and with less than three minutes total playtime significantly shorter, "La Patience" provides a chiming glimpse into a solemn, almost meditative sonic realm of enchanted, yet brooding and low-end heavy qualities before coming to a slightly abrupt halt prematurely. Quite an interesting contrast, this.
