After a busy spell collaborating with the likes of Fennesz and My Cat Is An Alien, Belgium experimental stalwart Cédric Stevens still finds time to complete a meditative LP of modular electronics, electric guitar and Indian tambura. Taking his trademark modular synth textures further into the ether zone, Stevens continues his flirtations between the fragile lines of noise and celestial drones, offering again another beautiful glimpse into his ongoing studio experiments at the reclusive Hermetic garage. With a gentle A-side of modular synths, guitars, and field recordings, the B-side plunges the listener into a grandiose meditating raga piece entitled "Benares Crescent." Based exclusively on recordings of an Indian tambura and developed by Stevens over the last 5 years, "Benares" swooshes through Indian psychedelic drones, evoking a sometimes wild others meditating, electrified Indian harmonic soundscape. The logical continuation of the Belgium "school" of exploratory electronics. Fans of Baudouin Oosterlynck, Léo Kupper, Folke Rabe or Remko Scha take note.
