I can firmly say Claire Fitch is the finest Irish female ambient cellist I've ever heard! I believe this will hold true even if I do ever hear another Irish female ambient cellist. Wafting out from Dublin, ambiencellist seduces with real strings and enticing electronics! Landscape's roiling blend of rather brassy swirls are almost-morose, yet emit entrancing lightness. More-obviously cello-powered ambiencellist (4:57) merges softly twirling strings with organ bleeps and washy drones... lovely! Emotive bowing seduces, as do thrumming layers of synth-ephemera; lunar sheen delivers both, and more, in a stunning collusion. The deeper, cool wisps of calm pad (3:06) levitate like shape-shifting smoke, and are accented by faintly stirring e-rhythms. Billowing ice field again demonstrates Ms. Fitch's natural sense of spaciousness, when ethereal-pastoral scenes unfold on cushiony currents of cello and gauzy electronics. In a single misstep (to my ears anyway), the echoey whiplash reverberations of shortest day distract from the otherwise cool thrumming resonance. Just-right amounts of fantasy-glare hover through the sweetly solemn strings of still reaction, before the wavelike contours of after swirl gently to a close. Highlight 40-minutes of your day with Claire fitch 's sublime convergence of sonic styles. An exciting/calming release, ambiencellist features subtle synthesis amongst it's more-classical elements, skillfully combined. Very nice! David J Opdyke.. Ambientrance.
