Oophoi - An aerial view [Glacial Movements - 2008]

An aerial view is one long hour ambient piece for Theremin and synth with the remit of describe the ice age in sonic terms but instead of resulting to clichéd deep wind weathered drones you might expect Oophoi takes us on a journey of rich sparking harmonic tones, as if we’re sail high above vast expanse of ice that just stretcher on and on.

This is the forth release from the glacier and isolation ambient label  Glacial Movements and the first in the Würm series- Würm is the name of the earth smost recent glaciations some 10000 years ago. An aerial view certainly is very hypnotic and beautiful piece of slowly unfolding ambience that really does conjure up been slowly carried along on the crest of the wind over vast expanse of white landscape, which often glitters below you like a vast white jewel desert. To start the piece Oophoi  dwells in swirling and windswept harmonics asif you travelling back through the mists of time the landscape changing around you. At about the 3 minute mark the soothing central harmonic drone risers slightly as you find your self on the edge of a vast misted ice Plato, you start to rise up and up as the sweet melodic tones uncurl them self’s more and start on your slow flight over enchanting and magical landscape. You Feeling the wonder and the awe of the changing contours of the ice mass below you, the sunlight catching it and the deep shadowy cannons. Oophoi mangers to keep you hypnotised complete through-out the pieces hour flow as he ebbs and flows the harmonic elements around you.

A fine and harmonic slice of ambience that sooths and lulls the world’s weight from around you, Letting you float perfectly and tranquil over a wondrous white mindscape- it’s just a pity when it finally finishers and the spell is broken until next time.
