ALBA ECSTASY: The Floating Body (2018)
“Ambient! Indeed, very ambient and relaxing EM”
1 The Floating Body 30:00 Alba Ecstasy Music
(DDL 30:00) (V.F.) (Ambient)
A wave that multiplies its reverb arc. The latter who does the same, and even to infinity, in a mirror effect where the half-circles of this wave extend and get lost beyond the horizon never stops to reflect the heart of its mission; make us sleep! Carved in Steve Roach's reflections, THE FLOATING BODY offers 30 minutes of ambient and rather relaxing music which is ideal for slipping into a deep sleep. Alba Ecstasy even targets an absolute energy regeneration. Yes, we fall asleep without any difficulty. The movement is simple, linear and minimalist with delicate sonic buds which sparkle very discreetly in the shadow of this sonic half-moon that continues to radiate its solitary song on subtle circadian beats that Alba Ecstasy adds well before our senses intercept them. A deja-heard effect! Maybe, except that here its appearance without invitation adds a seductive aspect to ambient music that I would describe as seductive, as it is literally relaxing and without additives to awaken the ghosts of the night ...You see the genre?
Have I been reinvigorated? Restored with a new desire to face my next 24 hours? The question suits me very well given my physical condition. But no! I didn't do tap-dancing the morning after my sleep with the waves and the beats of THE FLOATING BODY. But I slept ... and very well even. And for the price ... we don't lose sleep!
