More Info

Eine betont friedliche und "schöngeistig" sphärische Veröffentlichung ist "Mental Travellers" geworden, die Zusammenarbeit zweier der bekannteren Acts aus der Ambient-Szene, das Werk drückt symbolhaft die Überwindung nationalstaatlicher und politischer Grenzen aus, die z.B. in Europa die Menschen noch vor wenigen Jahrzehnten zu Erzfeinden gemacht haben. Heutzutage fährt ROBIN STOREY nach Moskau und findet dort Freunde, was für ihn (1955 im Nachkriegs-England geboren und direkt in den "Kalten Krieg" entlassen) noch immer wie ein Wunder scheint. Dass Musik quasi schon immer "grenzenlos" war, scheinen CISFINITUM & RAPOON mit ins Kosmische weisenden Klängen umsetzen zu wollen; fantastisch das hoch-emotionale End-Stück "Eurasia" mit ethnischem Gesang....

“Mental Travellers" is a collaboration work created by mail during the year 2006. This record could be considered as an attempt to find the very deep basic background which is common for all the people independent of cultural environment or political barriers between nations and states. The delving into the very depth of the heart exposes these common roots, and "Mental Traveller" shows it perfectly with its complex structure and at the same time simple integrity. It is an excellent blend of both artists distinctive features - the esoterical rhythmic patterns and mystical rustles by Robin Storey is intertwined with subtle and beautiful drone ambient waves by Eugene Voronovsky. The result is quite diverse and captivating, and most of the compositions remind us more of early Zoviet France than current Rapoon or Cisfinitum works. The final track called "Eurasia" features Russian ethnic female singer Toloka, whose archaic chanting makes a very natural conclusion for this mental travel to humanity's primordial roots. The CD comes in a full-colour fold-out digisleeve with artwork by Robin Storey, this edition is limited to 500 copies only." [label info]
