[Release page] Morphogenic is the last DiN volume directed by the masterful synth-electronic wizard Ian Boddy. This album is conceived as a collaborative effort between the excellent Parallel Worlds and the multi-instrumentalist Dave Bessell from Node. Morphogenic delivers an unclassifiable and sumptuous collection of sonic soundscapes, fluctuating drones and vibrant guitar-synth abstract symphonies. The sound geologies provide an outstanding range of psych-acoustic energies, cinematic moods and non-linear sound ambiences. “Oblivion” starts the album with ineffable and heavenly timbres which progressively reach into a deeply immersive synth-programmed orchestration full of nuances and dynamics. The sinister magical forces of a track such as “Heterodyne,” the ethereal sustained sonorities of “Inwards,” the tense hyperactive climax of “Denormal” are full of micro-events and exciting electronically orchestrated ideas. “Submerge” closes the album with a majestic slow moving inter-sidereal electronic epic for orientated pulsating sound structures, guitar glissandos and expressive drones. Morphogenic illustrates a complex and soundtracky emotional electronic experience dominated by spiritual colors of sounds, strangely if not moody outer-space cathedral of drones. This effort is remarkably diversified, continuously original, pluralistic and rhythmically dense with quasi-orchestral synth textures. A mesmerizing release and a true milestone in the genre of sci-fi ambient space music.
