The Italian Ambient, Raffaele Serra, hails from the same consortium of musicians as Never Known. The approach to music is "Environmental Ambient", the compositions wrought with worldly sounds - that of a speeding train, bird songs and the like.
Raffaele Serra has composed the music in a way that works around the sounds thus creating a symphony of life. Sometimes the music stops for a period, allowing the listener to soak up the sounds of a forest brimming with creatures.
This effect reminded this listener of Kurwisawas films, where the camera in the middle of a gargantuan battle sequence cuts to colossal, feathery clouds suspended in a robins egg blue sky. The effect is quite effective reminding the listener of the vast world outside.
The composition although sub-divided into separate tracks is recorded as a seamless whole. There seems to be a theme as the voyage takes us on a journey from the ancient to the future the end replete with bleeping, machine-driven sounds.
is, in "Theta Experience", originality found lacking in many
ambient recordings managing to distance it from the mundane. Another
winner from the Italian team.
