nlsoundwave Great album art!
Listening to this really helps me focus on my work when I'm on my computer (especially tracks 1 and 4, the middle two can get a tad repetitive for my tastes). Favorite track: the leaves of autumn, falling / summer’s golden tears.

Dave Aftandilian I love the cyclical nature of TA’s ambience here: sounds arise, fade, and surface again in new forms, just as do the seasons. I feel like I am floating in the midst of eternity, gentle currents carrying me toward an unseen destination. But this is not a frightening journey; instead it is peaceful and meditative, helping to restore one’s soul like witnessing a glorious dawn or sunset.

about

Genres: Electronic, Ambient, darkAmbient

On his seventh Projekt Records release, Australian ambient composer theAdelaidean finds inspiration in simplicity, contrasting purposeful harmonic progressions with melodic lines that thread between calm joy and sustained melancholy. ETERNITY IS seeks universal truths in both music and thought, evoking the intimate and the infinite through electronic textures that echo a wide variety of sources including theAdelaidean’s own award-winning verse.

1 Eternity Is / against all expectations / nothing but itself
2 Eternity Is / sodium lights in sequence / highway, homeward bound
3 Eternity Is / the final stroke of midnight / on all hallows’ eve
4 Eternity Is / the leaves of autumn, falling / summer’s golden tears

With each title forming a haiku when paired with the album’s title, these four tone poems pit the vast against the everyday by creating vocabularies for mysteries that words cannot fully express. Four poems, and four metaphorical seasons, each drawn using different palettes of sound. The spare synthesis of the album opener leaves carefully crafted spaces for acceptance as the wheel of time turns again to winter. Doom-laden bass hits then herald the return of the hot Australia summer, over a resonant backdrop of simmering dissonance. The piercing, ever-unsatisfied yearning of the Southern Spring, via bells, tolls patiently while deeper forces swirl and shift in the background. ETERNITY IS closes with choral clusters that rise and fall in waves, evoking the rich golds and oranges of Adelaide’s finest season. Hypnotic, haunting, eternal.

Eternity Is is four seasons of intimate infinity. This year in music and meditation can be played in any order. A symphony of polished sound guides the listener to uncertain destinations, where, deeply hidden against an impressionistic wash, one might hear a faint morse code signal spelling out the title of the album: an answering call from the void itself, as all questions reverberate to black.
