Shedir :: Falling Time (Cyclic Law)

Beautifully crafted, fully emotional, spiritually entrancing, intimately moving, seducing, majestic, enveloping and alluring.

When I think about female dark ambient artists and projects the first names which come to mind are All Seits, Lamia Vox and Algrath—but the promising Shider now welcomingly joins this circle with one brilliant debut album signed on Cyclic Law. Shedir is the project of the Italian sound sculptor Martina Betti. Her musical signature and influences clearly come from the very depth of subterranean dark ambient and post-industrial electronic art. Sonic and ecstatic sound textures are melted with processed micro-sounds and occasional cyber-like electronic grooves and pulses.

Falling Time is beautifully crafted, fully emotional, spiritually entrancing, intimately moving, seducing, majestic, enveloping and alluring. Creepy droning ambiences meet upward melodious lines and noisy kinetic pulsating interferences. The album does not lack of diversity and dynamics that will without any doubt maintain the attention of the listener. This project shows a slight departure from the dark-ambient music galaxy with the introduction of techno downtempo sequences made of braindance grooves.

As a result, this album is absorbing, delicately dark, and soothing. Ambience that will ravish fans of post-modern droning atmospheres from Shrine, Lawrence English, Troum as well those in touch with EDM/electronica based music.

Falling Time is available on Cyclic Law.
