With brightly insinuating and colorful melodies, that comprehends on the principles of an intelligent diagram of intonations the profound dynamics of sound, and its figurative arrangements within the context of space and dispersive elements, Echo Season creates on Periphery a perceptive and systemic, somewhat minimalist, but also vast and lucid mosaic of sonorous conversion – built almost as a voyage towards an everlasting and fascinating journey throughout the infinity of the universe, a collision with the emptiness of incomprehensible galaxies – that intrigues the listener from the beginning of the journey until the dramatic moments of its monumental conclusion, all arranged with the combined grace of talent and technique.
The overall attention to details is fascinating, and the minimalistic nature of the harmonies gives an overwhelming degree of creative impersonation to the original style of the artist. In each and every moment of the album, you have the impression of diving deeply into the vast blackness of the universe, in an infinite journey where absolutely nothing can stops the emotional turbulence that compels you, fueled by the sensible and organic vivacity of the sound.
Sometimes getting close to minimalist ambient electronic space music – or indeed, being a real, almost corporeal definition to the subgenre, with all the elegance of its formal consistency – Periphery is an excellent album, that conglomerates in the exponential elements of its qualities the surreal vitalities so inherent, and so necessary, to the genre. A formidable and fundamental piece, that has as much pragmatisms and exceptionalities as it has paradoxical, but subtlety devised theoretical spasms, Periphery is a great, lugubrious and splendorous space ambient record, with a dry degree of originality, that certainly makes the work meritorious of being highlighted and appreciated among enthusiasts of the genre.
