|The River Of Appearance
Looking through our publishing calendar recently, it is easy to notice that the Belgian artist's releases appear in it regularly. The 6 titles published so far are part of an informal publishing series, consistent by the layout, based on black and white photographs of flowers by Martina Verhoeven, Dirk Serries's wife. Today, "The River of Appearance" joins this series - a special album in the rich discography of VIDNA OBMANA, refined in every detail, both in terms of sound, composition and creating a favorable aura while listening to it. With every minute, the music seeps lazily, filling the entire environment with a rich palette of sounds from flutes, ocarina, harmonica and percussion, perfectly harmonizing with loops and electronic structures; pulsating delicately and setting the rhythm of our breathing while relaxing. In this way, feedback occurs - music is perceived in a favorable atmosphere. On "River ..." we touch the delicate, sublime musical matter, woven from eight miniatures, making up an exceptionally coherent concept. This album has all the elements that define ambient as a music genre. It is considered to be one of the most important albums in its category, along with the most recognized works for ambient music.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of his first release by the Projekt label. On this occasion, we have prepared a special jubilee edition, which in addition to the basic version of the album includes additions, incl. a cassette with demo versions of the session "The River of Appearance: Outtakes", a few photo prints by Martina Verhoeven, a back bag / sack with a graphic referring to the release and a few other extras. All elements are folded in a hand-made and numbered wooden flower box, specially prepared according to the musician's suggestions.
Standard edition in digipack limited to 450 copies.
