Osoroshisa – Nanseihokuto


Technically, this album could be classified as somehow drone, but that would omit the constant modulation and movement of aural events. It might as well be classified as not quite dark ambient, in that there is a melancholic mood that never does turn into bleak threatening darkness. Just like a face you’ve noticed once without remembering its details, the music sounds differently each time you listen to it. There is much to discover and that concentration is moving inwards, rather than following each detail of the sonic event seems a feature and not a limitation. At some point, Nanseihokuto implies a faint hope that somewhere in the infinite flow, there is some kind of rest and warmth. Something as trivial as a hug or a smile.
