With his 5th album he attempts to make music that awakes images hidden in our memory,
but which also corresponds to the fractal art images of American visual artist Janet Parke which are also featured in the booklet. Well, Visualia sounds quite intimate and imaginative at times, in the 3rd track it even turns a bit grand with beautiful symphonic textures, voice and deep bass-tones. Things don’t stay that quiet as “Visualia V” gets things moving with great tribal percussion, before things slow down again in the next track with deep, sometimes ethereal ambient textures and environmental sounds. “Visualia VII” moves into some
Tim Story-environment with treated piano and bell-sounds. The dreamy effect is a bit lost in the final track, which is a bit dreary.
All in all, Visualia is well produced recording, there’s sure something for any general ambient-fan to be found.
