Si Matthews returns with his eagerly awaited second album, this time for txt. His debut Tales Of Ten Worlds was an inspired piece of 90's Space Ambient Electronica that delighted fans of this era and showcased his talent for creating pure sonic escapism. On "Aurora" Simon takes this blue print light years ahead, forging a clearer identity and narrative, each piece shines like an exploding star and infinitely expanding with a sense of galactic wonderment and futuristic optimism for mankind.
Somatics Serenade is certainly one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard... I usually rate music on a scale (0...5) but this track somhow is a 6. It is so good that it makes the rest of the EP appear mediocre in comparison... although it is actually very nice! Jonas R.
