Ein Wirbel Fährt Auf
Was Hast Du Hier Geweckt?
Die Widerhalle Der Vergangenheit
Ein Undergegangenes Kloster
Hören, Vielleicht Vergessen
Hin, Aber Wie Zurück?
an unknown quantity to me, the biography places Ovro as being a female
solo artist from Finland who started recording in 2003, with this being
their 4th album. The bio further describes Ovro as a project creating
cinematic isolationist dark-ambient soundscapes, which is also spot on
in this regard.
Seven interlinking tracks make up the 40 minute span of this album, where
on one hand the atmosphere is one of being on a blustery windswept cliff,
whilst the other draws the listener down into sonar toned aquatic depths
and expansive cavernous realms. Subtle loops and tonal shifts give off
mild variations to the minimalist compositional structures, yet there
is amply going on here to be constantly engaging. Particularly when listened
to through headphones the album presents a evocative, surreal and abstract
experience that is certainly visually stimulating for the subconscious
Concluding a minimalist review for a minimalist album, this is a release
well worth your attention.
