A very cosmic ambient album, Deep Infinity heavily intensifies different nuances of silence, to expose over the dissident sonorous layer of its harmonies the intensity of fragmented textures, that undermines the frailty of an invisible, but profoundly surreal musical universe. Highly intense, although very quiet, this is an album perfect to relax and feel. It juxtaposes sensible realities, as long as they manage to manifest a subtle density fulfilled of unexpected energy.
Although there is nothing in Deep Infinity that you haven’t heard on other ambient music releases, this record does unravel the prominence of its own style. A lot more quiet and slow than the genre usually are, Deep Infinity uses calmness as the central force of its musical axis for the entire time. Breaking and expanding sonorous boundaries to form new musical elements – although you may think the album to be a little tedious at first –, in fact, Deep Infinity builds a new form of interaction between musical notes, in a relaxed harmonic space, where sound deviates from its ordinary purpose, to select and reach a new organic paradox of melodic ambitions.
A very interesting album with potential to achieve a very large audience into the underground, Deep Infinity is a somber and enthusiastic record, with bubbling soundscapes, that personalizes rhythmic dissonances, and compresses them into a universal cataclysm of sensibilities, modifying your thoughts and perceptions, prompting you to undergo a deeper journey into this stunning atmosphere of sound. With an intriguing paroxysm that comprehends the power of calmness to achieve its musical goals, Deep Infinity seems to really capture the sound of space, universe, galaxies and the infinity, so to speak. You really feel yourself traveling throughout space and time, concluding a marvelous journey, wondering how this album masterly achieves its objectives, as a deep space ambient album.
Although there is nothing really fantastic going on here, Deep Infinity is an ambient music album done right, worked out right and deciphered very well. Not only the most majestic goals of the genre are there, but they are perfectly introduced. And giving the fact that you never feel yourself bored, for the entire run, this album really deserves all the credits. Jon Salem is an incredible artist, and ambient music is really his thing!
