A marvelous work to be released by American independent record label Synphaera Records, Meridian has fourteen tracks: Landfall, Reactive Light, Liquid Memory, Frozen Clouds, Sub-Orbital Forest, Arcology, Solar Invocation, Meridian, Unearth, Fallen Land, Sylvan Rotation, Solarium, Vespyr Rising and The Age of Earth and Stone.
A lucid and exponentially revolving work – abundant in effusive and substantial harmonies –, that crystallizes over its own essence an infinite cosmogony of introspective sensitivity, the sound designs with its imperative and delightful dissonance a whole new category of exceptional artistry, delivering within its own versatile axis of creative dispositions a more dynamic evaluation of the genre’s musical principles, without renouncing to the imponderability of its own genuine, deliberative and vivacious perception. Or, in other words, the music reaches in the peripheral vastness of its more abrasive textures the highest stages of complexity, to reinvent itself over its own parallax, to become more simple, more easily assimilated, more impressive and inherent to the human soul, all of this without losing its remarkable sonorous identity.
A work of consistent and mordacious originality, Meridian is a splendorous album, that establishes more elevated and creative stylistic standards for the genre. With a virtuous and singular sensibility that explores the sound on the curricular profoundness of its fabulous anatomy, Ascendant is conscious about the ordinary limitations inherent to space dimensional symphonies; nevertheless, the artist reacts to this creating with its imperative visionary tendencies – and a very authorial musical diagram – an oblique planetary system full of fragmented, but infinite opalescent dissonances, made of continuously effervescent harmonious tonalities, that definitely can be qualified, when evaluated the whole picture, as a genuine monument of epic grandiosity.
Meridian is one of those albums that you have to listen for yourself. It will open your perceptions to a hyperbolic level of sagacious, unexpected, proverbial and greatly original musical authenticity, while displaying how an excellent artist can explore more ambitious and creative possibilities, within a genre that is, apparently – at least, on the surface –restricted to diffuse and arbitrary limitations.
