music is life, music is breath, music is us

Album Review: “Samatta” by The Corrupting Sea

Digipak_Outside

The Corrupting Sea creates a sound that is rooted in the free space that ambient music provides. Not bound by rigid time signatures, the music on Samatta allows for melodic and harmonic expressions that slowly draw you into a dream-like state. The contrast of the melodious textures with static droning and other sound effects allows for a multi-dimensional experience. Jason Lamoreaux, the brain behind The Corrupting Sea, set out to create “personal emotive moments in his work, creating themed albums made of delicate, often times, stripped down pieces.”

I think he accomplished his goal thoroughly.
