Electronica artist Andrei Lanes composes cinematic pieces
that are continually in a state of motion, emitting crystal clusters
soaked in a solution of profound sonic assortments and viaducts of
cryptic symphonies sprouting from the main artery. Lanes' latest recording
Verity takes the sound explorer once again into the depths
of the cosmic ethers and the embodiment of celestial dialogues as
he sows fields of melodic instrumentation and brands them with modern
eclectic trimmings and laser-like flares. Lanes constructs techno
embossed chambers riddled with droplets of keyboard-toned pellets
and suspensions of strings. The music is constantly traveling, held
together by the synchronized ticking of the percussive beats as snaking
curves jut out and retract. It is music amassed with futuristic expressions
and cosmic odysseys.
Tracks like "Abyss" and "Asylum" are a roiling
cauldron of dark, ghostly hues, and the haunting echoes strewn across
"Things Down There" are latticed in a nomadic scrolling.
The striking beats of "Motion Created Emotion" are embellished
by wavy spirals and peplums of digital pouching sequined by dancing
bubbles and ambient splashing. The music sounds like it is speaking
in an astral language that connects with the human sensory system.
There is a subterranean feel to "Dreamcatcher" like the
music is a backdrop for an under water expedition, as the agility
in the zigzagging cuts of "Amyland Triquetra,' Lanes' tribute
to singer-songwriter Amy Lee, and "I Can Be Anything"
are outfit in orchestral flusters and sci-fi glossed palisades.
Mastered by Sam Skaff at Mix Lab, Verity is cast in
a space age molding. With all tracks written, programmed, and produced
by Andrei Lanes, the songs are polished to a Paul Van Dyk shine
and bronzed in electro-fused elements that bring out the tracks futuristic
vibe. A blend of the melodic with the eclectic enables Verity
to jump out at listeners.
