Rigel Centaurus - Atlas Coelestis

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1209.0087

Stars have been plotted to a celestial map since the man raised his head to the night sky. He has collected the thoughts of his ancestors to build the real image and comprehension of the natural phenomenon seen above. The wonderful mystic world has opened before him holding its own order of things interaction. Even using the common sense you could feel the majesty and beauty of the bright shining eyes of the universe that form from nothing, live their long-term life and finally either blast with a celebrated supernova or fade quietly stubbing out the radiance.

Tracklist: 01.Пролог (Prologue) (4:29) 02.Отражённый радиосигнал (Reflected Radio Signal) (10:14) 03.Гамма-всплеск (Gamma-Burst) (17:10) 04.Орбита Глизе 581 d (The Orbit of Gliese 581 d) (9:36) 05.Невесомость (Мы здесь одни) (Zero Gravity (We are Alone Here)) (11:51) 06.Система погибшей звезды (The System of the Dead Star) (10:10) 07.Atlas Coelestis (16:11)

  1. Andrey Hlybov, aka Rigel Centaurus, continues his journey through what seem endless journeys through cosmic space. Strangely enough, the "Atlas Coelestis" is not presented as one continuous ride, but as seven individual tracks floating in deep space territory.

    Again, the composer has tried to give the free-form, ethereal music an expansive sound design, but it (still) sounds compressed and not too transparent to my ears. I like the symphonic drone imagery showing up now and then, but the flat current running through each of the pieces prevent the minimal-flavored music to open up, become expressive or shiny.

    What is meant to sound grand and stellar now remains one-dimensional, not really imagining wide open cosmic spaces.
