Uruk - The Great Central Sun [Ici D'Ailleurs / Mind Travel Series 017]

Released via the Ici D'Ailleurs sub- x sister-series that is Mind Travel Series on October 13th, 2k23 is "The Great Central Sun", the latest album effort cooked up by Thighpaulsandra and Massimo Pupillo under their joint musical nom de guerre that is Uruk. Presenting two extended compositions - "Per Speculum In Aenigmate" and "Radiating Rainbows" - over the course of roughly 42 minutes the duo opens from an angel of majestic, large scale panoramic Ambient x Score fusion which presents a Contemporary Classical-leaning depth and gravitas that seems to be older than eternity, or at least the cosmos, itself, presenting a slow, yet steady ebb and flow of time defying harmonic pulses later accompanied by chiming, crystalline space synth tones and echoes of (Neo)Cosmic as well as fluttering, choir'esque non-vocalisms and brittle strings, haunted and frosty sound cascades and spacious and solemn, almost cavernous Ambient sequences for the advanced genre connaisseur as well as the experienced collector of scenic fantasy movie scores. Beautifully arranged and absolutely timeless.
