Somnambule - Writing About Music

Kobe ~ Made of Water

Unassuming and gentle and deceptively simple (intricacy revealed through familiarity).
Languid and contemplative: taking slow, deliberate steps.

Drops of water, woodblock rhythm, English sung as a second language.
Acoustic instruments woven seamlessly with synthetic sounds.

Pauses, echoes and eddies of sound like wafts of sonic incense;
Chiming of prayer gongs, acoustic guitar notes;
Languorous, limpid and inviting.

The sort of music that could seep into your marrow, become a part of you. Closest neighbour might be Sufi’s Life’s Rising.
