f5point6 – KaleidoSound: Time, Space & Frequencies Vol. 2 – See Blue Audio

I was listening to a discussion on the nature of Art and it was said that artists reflect the times around them. I think creators of note do, while others repeat the past under the guise of authenticity. I want to listen to music that informs emotionally, sonically and politically – the personal is political, or is that the other way round. R. Cleveland Aaron’s latest collection of sounds and ideas do all three by enhancing the blue in the sky outside, just as much as they compress space to be viewed through the lens of an inner soul. The concept began by Volume one is now furthered on the location of this second release, guided by a series of intermissions before each setting is explored via the breadth of detail. Perhaps most intriguing of all is Stella Marina which remodels the flair of drums into another world of music. Followed by the free flow of improvisational [Outro – The Beginning and the End] which is likewise uniquely precise and supremely captivating.

Release: September 25

KaleidoSound: An Introduction by f5point6 – See Blue Audio

Hit play and R. Cleveland Aaron’s magical notation invigorates what you will hear as worlds collide and gently explode. The ambience at work here is not the breathy, washing over you in the background kind, but is fully engaging in strange and remarkably exciting ways. Otherworldly melodies are played with at times, sometimes beautiful notes are explored too such as on the stunning Altocumulus. At others an almost oriental channelling occurs, or is that the grainy, improvisational echo of freeform jazz in the distance? The treatment of sound twists around the stereo in forward-thinking ways which are never far from emotionally challenging/ rewarding in equal measure. Perhaps the proof is found in the concluding hot crackle of Sun Fire with its undulating keys which are both wholly precise, yet madly expansive: tearing at edges, speaking intelligent language in new forms.

Release: April 24
