Astral TV - Travelling the Circuits LPEl Paraiso (Denmark)
Rasmus Rasmussen (Aerosol, Causa Sui) and Keith Canisius present another delightful set of Astral TV tracks with Travelling The Circuits. Since their debut album, Chrystal Shores from 2017 (EPR 042LP), the Copenhagen-based duo have refined and perfected their approach to making semi-improvised synthesizer music. Musically it doesn't get much more pure than this. From their vast assemblage of synthesizers -- that is, vintage, modern, digital, analog, and modular synthesizers -- the two producers are squeezing the finest sonic essence, for your neural pleasure. Forget about song structures and leads -- it's not that kind of album. Listening to Travelling The Circuits is like floating on an electronic river through a slowly changing scenery. There's really no story here, and it's not about the destination. It's about colors -- lots of colors. And the tactile beauty of sounds and patterns, filters slowly opening and closing, letting your senses tickle by a unique 80hz oscillation that only a wood paneled analog synth from the early 1980s can produce. Travelling The Circuits is a true auditory delight.
