A playful electronic musical journey evocative of Eno's MUSIC FOR FILMS, ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER, 8-bit soundtracks and prog-infused 70s synth epics; but executed with a rigorous conceptual framework worthy of John Cage or the radical film experiments of Lars Von Trier. SOLARISPELLIS is the follow up to Arandel's 2010 debut album IN D and similarly continues to be entirely in his signature key (a nod to minimalist godfather Terry Riley). from woozy electronica to emotive techno and the most vertiginous krautrock - the tempos, Moods and subjects are intertwined, covering an array of musical territories despite the uniformity of the tonic note and chord. There is a paradox to the intricate beauty of SOLARISPELLIS; an almost symphonic album recorded in the living room of a small apartment. The sounds suggest harpsichord, piano, organ or drops of water on a hot tin roof although almost every sound you hear was synthesized. There's a scholarly approach to the music but it does not require any effort on the audience's part.
