~~ Absolute brilliant work of the innovative guitar player Manuel Göttsching. In this release he explores the possibilities of his instrument and make combinations with electronic structures. The first track is pleasant, quiet amazing with its repetitive and gentle melody. Midnight on Mars draws a dreamy soundscape full of guitar echoes with a well-inspired solo. With the title track, this marvelous piece culminates the album. The two last titles mix guitar parts to sequencers arpeggios with a great sense of musical sentences. We can also ear some discreet minimalist accents on that ones. Fresh and well done, this release is a good enter in Ashra music.
