Spain’s Bruno Sanfilippo makes some of the most creative cinematic ambient music around, and he has done it again with Auralspace.
Seven tracks in a continuous flow tell compelling stories through sound. It’s as though Sanfilippo has written the perfect soundtrack, and now someone needs to make the movie that goes with it. “Mimosa Hostilis” starts as a brooding, pulsating piece, but after its somewhat dark beginning it glows warmly midway through, with bright metallic timbres as birds twitter in the background.
It keeps pace for the balance of the track, fading into delicate softness at the end.
The title track is next, another delicate floater at first, with cool electronic twitters and pulses eventually joining in.
And for ethereal floating music it doesn’t get much better than “Divine Moments.” The album has a very cohesive feel, each piece having a distinct character that warrants its inclusion, adding to the overall flow of the disc which is quite seamless and seemingly effortless.
Bruno Sanfilippo is always good, and Auralspace is my favorite CD of his so far.
