A vast, infinite and serene configuration of unbound and cosmic sonorous melodies: perhaps this could be the best description for Timelessness, a collaborative album between two of the best, most amazing, creative and exceptional contemporaneous guitarists that we have in the international independent music scene nowadays – English Dan Caine, and Hungarian István Csarnogurszky, a.k.a. musicformessier.
With calm, peaceful and transcendental songs, in Timelessness, the poetic and melodic lines of Dan Caine meet the cosmic and proficient sonorous layers of musicformessier, in a perfect convergence of harmonies, that serves as the ethereal structure for a mosaic of ascendant conscious vibrations, that literally makes your mind travel to another dimension. The record, made up of ten tracks – Aeon, Millennium, Amaranthine, Perennial, Solstice skies, Moments, Black hole orbit, Timelessness, Drifting in hyperspace and Theories – creates a lucid dream of beautiful melodies, upon which you can fly endlessly, throughout the contingency and the fleetingness of your own perceptions, jumping from one note to the next, in a never ending journey of beauty, transcendence and redemption.
With the prevalence of soft rhythms, more restricted cadences, lucid and brief minimalist sonorous devices, and dissonant walls of sound, Timelessness is undoubtedly an interesting work of art, that explores the basic principles of guitar in the field of post-rock. With intriguing melodies that underlies the onset of a profound melancholic opacity, the work, as a whole, transcends its own creative atmospheric lines, being more than just a work of excellent technical configuration. Aligning perfectly atmosphere with emotion, sensation with sound and beautifully detailed melodies with skilled technical devices, Timelessness is an imperative journey of sensibility and sound, lead by guitar notes, and tunes its rhythms inside your head, turning on an infinite universe of possibilities within and without you.
It’s a marvelous journey, and a splendid work of art. The delicate sonorous poetry and the serene appreciative melodies we found on this album certainly make Timelessness one of the best guitar driven atmospheric albums of the year. But being a product of the combined creative efforts of two of the most talented guitarists of the contemporaneous independent music scene, it is no surprise that an album featuring both would be so good.
