Album: Daughters of Jupiter
The four Galilean moons are the inspiration for Daughters of Jupiter (61'37"), the wonderful collaboration between Tony Andersen and Kent Eskildsen of Timescape. Each of the four tracks delve into the mysterious beauty and scientific contemplation surrounding these enigmatic Jovian satellites. The music is completely textural, and creates a beautiful yet mysterious space within the listener. Massive reverberation added to fluctuating digital timbres make for an interesting drift through a region of space no human has ever visited. The rising and falling of synth tones resolves into a sustaining electronic environment, which builds into a dense atmosphere of unique sounds and effects. The soundfield is also capable of thinning out to near transparency in this fragile and stimulating work. Science has provided the world with images and facts by looking into space, Timescape translates this knowledge into a work of personal human expression by looking within themselves.
