"Elodies 'Odyssee Musique En Scene II' is the latest offering by Elodie on Faraway Press. Elodie is a musical collaboration featuring Chalk and Timo van Luyk, which first released their particular brand of ambient music, as in a combination of keyboards, wind instruments and ROOM in 2011. Their previous offerings, either on Faraway Press or Van Luyks equally impressive La Scie Dore label have, for obvious reasons, never failed to impress me. This album was recorded live at the Gerauschwelten Festival in Mnster on 7 February 2015. It is a brief performance, 33 minutes, but let me assure you that quality always goes over quantity. This half hour+ is a gorgeous, shimmering beautiful listen. Resting on a soft bed of keyboards and various flutes, Elodie takes you on an odyssee that is calming and soothing, without ever becoming a clich. The atmosphere and warmth
of the recording is just perfect. The applause at the end is a reminder this was done live, proving not only the sheer quality of playing, but also of the remarkable high quality of interaction between these two musicians and the space they are performing in. As you might have guessed, 'Odyssee', handsomely packed in a sturdy carton gatefold cover, is a highly recommended release." [Freek Kinkelaar, Vital Weekly]
