WMRI - Quiescent Whispers

Record: 2010-2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1209.0098
Ambient, Symphonic, Experimental

The album was recorded in different times between 2010 and 2011. It is rather specific because each composition contains some individual conception, which is not always been close to the melody, more to the technical aspects of realization. Moreover these works were recorded separately from the major albums and the releases at all, as that time - the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011 - was quite poor in editions for different reasons. So promise of a pleasant listening would be absurd: take care at sharp corners - conceptually!

Tracklist: 01.Ancient Light (19:40) 02.Gliss-Glass (11:38) 03.The Ghost Room (10:35) 04.Moving the Dark Mass (19:05) 05.White Hall (12:00)

Composed by WMRI. All instruments programmed, keyboards and synthesizers played, music written, arranged and mixed by Mike Winchester. Cover photo by Anton Raath. Artwork by Mike Winchester.

  1. Track 4, Moving the Dark Mass, reminds me of the Virgin years of Tangerine Dreams. I quite like this one!

  2. Un sacré voyage !
    [RebelRaiser • Jan 7, 2012]
    Un très bel album brossé en cinq tableaux, complètement indépendants les uns des autres mais relativement homogène et transparent cinq morceaux construits sur le même moule, très ambient jamais ennuyeux ou prétentieux. Une musique de rêve, de longs espaces presque infinis,jamais tumultueux ou tortueux presque paradisiaques, ce genre de paysages sonores où l'esprit imaginatif de l'auditeur se laisse prendre, entraîner pour finalement y succomber. Deux perles absolues selon moi dans cet album, le deux et surtout le cinq où WMRI semble beaucoup s'inspirer, ce n'est pas un reproche, de l'émotionnelle musique de klaus Schulze. Une merveille du genre, idéal pour s'évader et voyager ! Et même si ce n'est que virtuel, qu'est ce ca fait du bien !


    Peaceful Relaxing . . . Smoothly Flowing . .. A River of Light . . .

    I was very excited by "Gliss-Glass" which made me think of some of the stunning new-age music of the past . . . This album's lengthy pieces quietly told vibrantly beautiful auditory stories . . . filling my being with a quiescence . . . . . a lovely peace . . . a quiet that spread like an ink stain across the white surface of a bleached clothe on an endless table . .. it spread with the glowing colors of the rainbow . . enigmatic and beautiful . . . mystical . . it grew with the endless patterns of golden numbers . . . like a fractal .. .. repeating a cool beauty that slid down my spine like the cold steel of subtle strength . . like the depth of eternal space imprinted on the depth of an endless sea . . . a beauty . . .
