The comeback of the Canadian artist Ron Charron in the circles of EM was one of the good news in 2021. Since then, he has released an album for his project Sequential Dreams with the very good Chrysalis. His project Midnight Airship also released an album called Learning to Fly. And lately it was Kuutana's turn to make a comeback with an album of ambient music ideal to relax, think and if not fall asleep. Another artist who makes ambient music? Yes, but coming from an artist who also does Berlin School and progressive music, one can expect a different vision. That's a bit much what L'ESPRIT DES EAUX offers. Far from Vangelis, like in Rebirth and Undiscovered Shores, the Quebec musician takes us to the lyrical shores of a music whose fine rhythmic melodies shine in a heavy velum woven of shadows and lights. Between Juta Takahashi, Steve Roach and Stephen Parsick, L'ESPRIT DES EAUX flirts with the great names of the genre.
