Astrovia - Ambienaut

Record: 2003-2018 • Edition: 2018 • USC-WR-1803.0405
Space Ambient

One day we put on the headphones, turn on the music and... find ourselves in a parallel dimension. The picture of reality begins to change, the space is filled with unknown boundless waters of sound passages and melisms. Consciousness resists at first, trying to grasp the usual material patterns, but the element of sound is inexorable. Images from dreams, abstractions and unseen landscapes engulf the traveler’s mind. Ambienaut. The one who knows a secret: how to use music to open a portal into the inner sea... Where did the idea of this mystical music come from? Could it be that the first ambient was recorded by a supercivilization that lived at the dawn of the Universe? And the memory of it remained in the world information field. Or, one day, in an abandoned space laboratory, devices and computers with artificial intelligence left in the switched-on state continued the research program... and perceived secrets of the Universe, having expressed them in sound. But who is destined to discover this knowledge for mankind? We will visit different worlds in the universe of music of ambiance and find out why only Ambienaut will cope with the task like that...

Berlin School, Ambient

Epochs shift epochs. New structures are formed under the tips of the fingers. The stream of thoughts flows freely, and ideas are born as if by themselves. You create worlds with one pass of a hand, before which you prostrate yourself subsequently. And then a stunning music breaks out from under your rough hands, over which you have no power. It rushes to where time and space merge into a single whole. Its motif, changing imperceptibly, carries you into the ocean of sound. The steps of the sequences alternate, responding to the aspirations of the soul of an invisible genius nurtured by the experience of generations. And in all this – the integrity of a majestic music! Perhaps this is how happiness sings, and delight fills the cup of appeasement? What can be more beautiful than the contemplation of how the creator creates his creation, and creation creates its creator? No thoughts, no words... There is only a dissolution of consciousness in the music, on which the time itself left its imprint.
