Serries’ second album on Projekt is a suitable follow-up to his warm and welcoming 2014 release, The Origin Reversal. More than a critically-acclaimed re-boot of his classic vidnaObmana sound, this is ambient music that flows from its discreet origins of sonic purity, washes of harmony, and languid textures. Unfurling with seductive deliberation and orchestrated with just a handful of effects and electric guitar, this album is again fully improvised and recorded in real-time.
Even more than on its predecessor, Disorientation Flow touches upon the introspective character of Serries’ musical language. String-like chords, subtle waves and dynamic warm drones are the sonic ingredients on this new album, creating a soundtrack for the mind. Spiritually playing with notation of extended time and isolation, Serries has the ability to produce beautiful but simultaneously intense soundscapes which hold much more than just layering notes. It’s a musical language that speaks emotion, warmth, melancholy and subtlety.
Here, Serries conveys an awareness of a serene approach to the act of musical creation, which is representative of the best of contemporary ambient music. A moody and reflective group of compositions that retains a sense of ambient bliss as the flow subsides.
