Atmospheric ambience with just enough variation and experimentation.The gentle whistles flows effortlessly on a soft carpet of electronics textures, slow spiraling in increases-decreases, creating a recording not to be missed by those who are curious and by those who love to fly far away on the wings of surreal environment.

Spain’s Bruno Sanfilippo makes some of the most creative cinematic ambient music around, and he has done it again with Auralspace. Seven tracks in a continuous flow tell compelling stories through sound. It’s as though Sanfilippo has written the perfect soundtrack, and now someone needs to make the movie that goes with it. “Mimosa Hostilis” starts as a brooding, pulsating piece, but after its somewhat dark beginning it glows warmly midway through, with bright metallic timbres as birds twitter in the background. The music seems to swirl around, wrapping the listener up in it. “Imagined Reality” slows things down and seems like pure floating music, ebbing and flowing not unlike Steve Roach’s Structures From Silence, until a percolating little percussion line appears. It keeps pace for the balance of the track, fading into delicate softness at the end. The title track is next, another delicate floater at first, with cool electronic twitters and pulses eventually joining in. And for ethereal floating music it doesn’t get much better than “Divine Moments.” The album has a very cohesive feel, each piece having a distinct character that warrants its inclusion, adding to the overall flow of the disc which is quite seamless and seemingly effortless. Bruno Sanfilippo is always good, and Auralspace is my favorite CD of his so far. ( Phil Derby )
