Pjusk & Sleep Orchestra - Drowning In The Sky
Ambient, Drone Early northern evening is outside the window. You open the door of a small cabin and step outside into the chilly breath of the nature. It is a complete solitude around and no sound can be heard besides the music of skies, of mountains around, of vast forests and deep rivers. No need in civilization or everyday constant pursuit after the mortal valuables, cultural madness or social status. You are one-on-one with a primal power that spins in eternal circle of life and death.

Many people claim to understand the message of this power whether they try to describe it in words or melodies, physical forms or abstract explanations. I will not doubt their abilities, I don't have such an authority to acknowledge or disprove those claims; everybody has the right to believe in his own illusions. In my case, what I can actually do is only try to feel it through the forms of art which are the closest to my heart and sensual comprehension. Today I have a great opportunity to set a close connection with the energy of creation through the new album of two ambient artists of a slightly different origin, but definitely united by one spirit. Jostein and Rune, two fellas from Norway that are better known by their project Pjusk join forces with UK resident Christoper aka Sleep Orchestra and together they present the record under a very poetic name "Drowning in the Sky". With the music that is flowing out of my speakers I begin to believe in immortality of the natural moment, its significance and importance for every human being regardless his beliefs and delusions.

It is your turn, my dear reader, to walk out of your home, take a ride, or a drive, or a walk, or whatever towards wide plains which are close to your habitat, lie down on earth, scatter your hands and leave the mortal shell behind. Just try to look into the depth of the sky and drown in it while listening to the sound of Pjusk and Sleep Orchestra which unlocks the gates of spiritual journey in front of you. This unique experience becomes even stronger if you are wrapped in the veil of night when myriads of stars are strewn over the roof of heaven. You can absorb their light with a gentle ambience of "Donitsk" or play with small flashes of energy on "Daithn", you can drift on slow waves of "Skdiv" or immerse in misty cloud of "Aoleeingal". Your soul sinks inside a meditative unity with a world around returning to the womb of creation. Deep drones continue to wander in "Rionzemef" where splashes of soft streams are enlaced by wilderness of the wind. The sky blossoms with thousands shades and undertones of northern lights in "Vansunbarth", and you remain breathless from the eternal beauty of virgin nature. The final track "Rionzemef" has a strong melancholic origin charged by an airy melody, a soft background clicking rhythm and a quiet shrilling of violin.

There is a certain theory that each object in universe has its gravitation field and when a child is born his gravitation field starts to expand in the form of sphere with a speed of light. Strength of this field fades with a distance passed but never reaches an absolute zero. It means that small particles of our personality, of our emotions and feelings travel between star systems and even discover other universes. I am sure that the music that is presented by Pjusk and Sleep Orchestra becomes an amplifier of this field, giving it an extra energy to break even more boundaries. All fans of deep ambient explorations inspired by natural environment will be more than happy to lay their hands on this CD. A real pleasure hidden inside loops and drones, soft field recordings and abstract electronic manipulations while another powerful release sees its light on Moscow based Dronarivm records.
