[ Altered ] Second Movements could be considered a remix album; but in truth it is way more than this.
For Swedish composer Magnus Birgersson a work of music can take many paths, and so this album is purely interpreting another way to move through sound. Atmospheric in essence, almost beatless, the soundscapes invite the auditor to settle within and embark upon a profound floating experience.
As in the reminiscence of a dream, Solar Fields subtly recalls [ Movements ] harmonies and melodies in a widely stretched manner with low resonating pads providing a soft texture upon which electrified and crunchy interferences glide.
The artist sets the mood and tempo to slow motion and from this deep cocoon of sounds lets new inspiration rise. This is highly innovative ambient. Immersive and impressive.
