Waves on Canvas ‘Into The Northsea’

[Release page] Stefano Guzzetti is a versatile musician and sound alchemist coming from Sardinia. After the publication of two CDr’s under his own name he launched a promising electronic sonic ambient project entitled Waves on Canvas. Into The Northsea is the second effort released as Waves on Canvas, available on Psychonavigation Records. The music can be described as a subtle mix of impressionistic dream-pop rockin’ ambient, orchestral minimalism and sound ecologies. Most pieces include vocal parts or narrative such as in the amazingly evocative and mesmeric “Voix dans Une voix.” The result is alluring and constantly peaceful, efficiently sentimental, bringing to the fore a luxurious form of solitude to the listener. No isolationist but autonomously nostalgia under an intimate musical discourse. “Twenty Years” starts as an instrumental and delicately dreamy ballad built on the piano harmonies. “Angel” reveals a catchy pop-ish rhythmically orientated song with an obvious shoegazey tendency. The same musical schema goes for many tracks, such as the softly and smoothly positive “Starfish.” Compositions like “Flowers Of The Northsea” or “Stella” reveal more proximity with environmental music moving into a solid soundscaping minimalism. According to me these reflective-long stringed immersive soundscapes are the major strength of Into The Northsea’. To sum up things, Into The Northsea is a colorful, rhythmically orientated dream pop ambient album which features a nice combination of micro-sounds, immediately recognizable melodies which positively embrace the essence of soothing mellow electronic music. A pleasant listening, quite charming and accessible to all.

Into The Northsea is available on Psychonavigation. [Release page]
