The album starts with floating ambient tunes drenched in scratchy waves of distortion. You immediately feel a beautiful cosmic tension in the immersive soundscapes.

By using live‐looping and improvisation techniques, Gilardini blends unique elements together. He shapes a hybrid wave of soundscapes sublimating into powerful resonances.
The Age Of Space comes to you in healing waves of cosmic pulses that navigates the auditor through alien cinematographic worlds. This album has dreamy sounds with darkened moods. Gilardini introduces an experimental space ambient journey with a surprising outcome. This is just blistering splendid experimental ambient music!
