One year after "Pellicules", Mika Goedrijk
presents the next aural view of his inner self with looking-glass world. Musically, the self conceptional shift into the world of ambient idm sounds is evident. Well placed patterns enriched with mellow guitar slides (Dead Air
), melancholic piano lines (At The 11th Hour
), adistinctive (Hearly
) aphex-twin synth (White Sand Semantics
), archaic trumpet calls (Lost Decade
), pounding breakbeatswith pulsing sub bass (Rusty Swiss Army Knife
, Le Grand Mal
), make this release a fascinating blend of contemporary electronic tones.
Looking-glass world is an album of otherworldly ambience entwined with a blend of acoustic sounds and sheets of sequenced patterns. A highly aesthetic sonic universe, where moods and mastery melt into warm, repetitive arrangements. Have a look into the looking-glass world.
