While there is not anything too extraordinary about this album, the excellence of silence in between the spaces, and the expansive serenity of the restless sound around the vacuum of the notes, creates a universe of dense – occasionally lethargic – but ambivalent horizontal expectations, where it’s possible to feel the slowness of the melodies, and the anatomy of its virtual impulse departing from a singular sentimental vortex, that revolves calmly towards the epicenter of a darkness that will never be entirely diluted into the vastness of the human conscience.
While the sound can be somewhat predictable – at least to a certain degree – which, given stylistic limitations, is a fault of the genre more than the artist, The World of Similitudes in a general evaluation never disappoints. If you like a pragmatist creative density that elaborates space and silence as a serene and complacent complement of sound – to the point of delivering a discreet degree of minimalism –, as well as sound meticulously sculpted as a pervasively methodic and cautious lucid dream, than you will find this album a beautiful conception of a colorful, though sometimes despondent timeless cosmogony.
Sporadically flirting with the more sinister genre of dark ambient, The World of Similitudes is the type of album that can be perfect to relax. While far from being a masterpiece, it’s a wonderful exemplar of space ambient music. Delivers with competence, efficiency and an overall genuine style a marvelous journey into the most abrasive depths of the darkest human sensibilities.
