Latvian producer and sound engineer, Puremusic, enlightens us listeners once again with his latest work, "Serenades Of The Night" -- his fourth album to be released with Silk Music. Ambitious and inspiring, the album explores the significance of love, romance, twilight contemplation, and the wonder of nature to create a sweeping, evocative body of work that grows deeper with each listen.
As the first track of Puremusic's latest album, "Serenades Of The Night," "Twilight" steeps us into a world of wondrous tones and textures. "No Fairy Tales" builds from a few simple elements such as finger-style bass, reverberating drums and echoing arpeggiators to become a fully enveloping atmosphere the carries us away. Delicate textures, resonating piano and evocative melodies sweep in and out of "Closer," each element arriving as a gentle wave that takes us deeper and deeper into Puremusic's wonderful soundscape. "Born To Love" couples the nostalgia of an acoustic guitar with the wonder of coastal sounds to place us on the shoreline of bliss. In "Tatchi," Puremusic's masterful control of sound transforms the old-world tones of a Japanese koto into something wholly new, adding a touch of fantasy to an already ambitious atmosphere. "Kama" sits as an inspiring prologue that transitions into the album's seventh track, "Reach It." Layers of percussive elements open "Reach It" and establish a foundation upon which Puremusic creates an exotic, otherworldly tune that transports us to a different time. Celestial tones appear and withdraw upon a canvas of sound in "Warmth," a meditative interlude that sets the tone for the more contemplative tracks that close out Puremusic's latest album, "Serenades Of The Night." True to its title, Puremusic's distinctive sound engineering makes "Creation" a perfect sonic companion for watching the dawn of the universe, or for simply relaxing on a summer's eve with someone special. "Pour l'Amour" features a reverberating solo piano whose chords inspire quiet reminiscence. "Dawn" closes out Puremusic's latest album, "Serenades Of The Night," on a bright, elated note.
