Much ambient ends up sounding the same - drones and loops garnished with som field recordings - but not this recording, which has its own, wistful personality that evolves patiently and evocatively over the course of its runtime.
Peaceful music that moves. The cover art illustrates this perfectly: the tracks manage to be both dynamic and still, existing in that dissolving point between churning ocean and static sky. A perfect listen while writing or doing other creative work.
Favorite track: Your Pond.
Water Memory began as an imagination of the feelings that are floating through the natural world around us. It morphed and cycled and gained memories of my own which are now contained like those in all bodies.
