About this album

  • Published: Jan 23, 2008

 

 

 

Cosmic Lullabies is the sixth album from the Finnish ambient producer Doc and the Russian pianist Lena Selyanina, cosmic and meditative in its style and spirit.

The opening track Bell Meditation is a pure meditation song based on huge bell sounds that resonate and vibrate for extended periods of time. Gradually rising ethereal echoes from sacred eastern choral tradition mix with the bells to form a calm and majestic cosmic setting, perfect for deep relaxation and meditation.

The starting point for Neptune was Lena's beautiful impressionistic piano improvisation moving in G# Minor, "the bluest of musical modes", as Lena puts it. The piano then gets surrounded by a mysterious and meditative ambient soundworld. The entire 17 minute song can be interpreted as a long, symbolic probe-like dive through the blue, dreamlike gas layers of Neptune to ever deeper and darker realms, all the way down to the solid rock and metal core of the planet, and from there back to the starlight.

The final track Andromeda is an ambient voyage into the majestic sphere of our neighbour galaxy.

Ambient with big A. Not falling into the general new-age type easy listening, these soundscapes rise from the depths of the cosmos, bringing stardust and starlight alongside. The listener is sent on a journey through deep waters and cold emptiness of space. The sounds and engineering is sublime and atmospheres are woven together with accuracy and vision. I enjoyed the piano improvisation a lot also, brought welcome extra layer to the mix. Excellent work overall. There's lot of Serrie, Eno and Jarre here, but in deep slumber, as if they were in cryo sleep.

Questo album è straordinario per il potere dei tre brani. Per godere appieno questa musica credo sia necessario essere sdraiati e ad occhi chiusi. Il suono del primo brano ha il potere di prenderti per mezzo della sua continuità. Allora seguirai ciò che accade in te stesso... andando molto nel profondo. Nel secondo brano torni in superficie ma purificato. Ascolti il suono del piano come lo ascolterebbe un bimbo. Nel terzo brano riprendi il viaggio e puoi sentire che tu come la musica stai divenendo rarefatto. Il tuo ego si dissolve. Queste tre traccie le ho trovate molto adatte per la respirazione olotropica. This album is extraordinary for the power of three songs. To fully enjoy this music think we need to be lying down and eyes closed. The sound of the first track has the power to take through its continuity. Then you follow what happens in yourself ... going very deep. In the second passage you return to the surface but purified. You hear the sound of the piano as an infant listen. In the third song you return inside, and you can feel rarefied, like music. Your ego is dissolved. These three tracks I found very suitable for holotropic breathing.

Para momentos tranquilos. Apaga la luz o cierra los ojos....permite viajar. Ambiental neoclásica. Notable. Me gusta la portada del disco.
