Drifting In Silence & Tineidae – Simulation (Album – Labile Records)

Genres/Influences: Ambient-Electro, Cinematic.

Format: Digital, CD, Vinyl.

Background information: “Simulation” is a collaboration between American artist Derrick Stembridge aka Drifting In Silence and Ukrainian Pavlo Storonsky aka Tineidae.

Contents: The work sounds like a real melting pot between the experimented Ambient project Drifting In Silence and the more IDM/Ambient approach of Tineidae. The result covers a wider range of Ambient-Electronic music with a nod to pioneers like Tangerine Dream. Space-driven tracks, which sometimes move to a darker edge, but often revert to “pure” ambient work.

+ + +: The first title is an impressive opening revealing a real complementarity between the two artists. The overwhelming sound production reflects maturity, but still vintage sonic elements characterized by sound effects and astral sweeps. The rhythm that runs through the opus makes everything more accessible.

– – –: The first cut is also my favorite and I miss similar sound explosions on the rest of the work.

Conclusion: This is a successful collaboration between two artists with somewhat different paths although totally linked to each other by the magic of Ambient-Electronics.

Best Songs: “Reality”, “Dark Matter”, “Simulation, Pt.2”.

Assess: seven.
