With a serenity that juxtaposes the marvelous universe of a magnificent correlation of pure sentiments, the music of Alexander Saykov materializes it’s components in a completely different path, with a whole new deal of ambitions: it’s the nucleus of its fragrant sonorous prosperities that analyzes dreams in the purest state of its melodic context, while surrounds in a secure distance the wonderful grace of a taste that perpetuates over the infinity of its consistence the mutual comprehension of its own musical dissonances. Nonetheless, while there is a certain abundance of common features within his music – that may seem too overly replicated in the genre, at least in what concerns harmonic or technical dispositions – there is a formidable degree of authenticity on this work, that really dilutes over the exponentially creative ordeal of Alexander Saykov’s art the true considerations of a universe rich in proverbial textures, strictly made at the perennial inquest of a glorifying sound.
While the album is, indeed, marvelous, it is possible to feel that something is missing. This may appear as consequence of a constant rhythm and a theme in common, that has little melodic variations. Nevertheless, there is a systematic consistency and a charismatic fever imbedded in these tracks, that sound confortable not only in the first few seconds, but for the rest of the album as well.
A beautiful record with wonderful harmonies, perfect for relaxing, Sky Whale is a vigorous standalone groundwork, that highlights the most important and exclusive features of ambient music, with a deep intensity that dissipates reason to capture a salutary universe that is lost in the solitary configuration of our isolated sonorous realities.
