Album review: “321 Days” by a passage to the stars

CD100_out

Composer Ricardo Alves’ project a passage to the stars is a fantastic example of how melody is so diverse in ambient music. The sound effects and light percussive synth sounds only add to the complex yet approachable sound that Alves creates. 321 days is a continuation of what makes a passage to the stars great, and you see more exploration into rhythm, especially from what appear to be downtempo and trip-hop influences. It’s a great entry into the project’s discography.
