After bouncing around a variety of projects during the past decade, building a resume that does ample justice to the word "multimedia," Doron Sadja returns to crafting spatially manipulative solo electronics in his recent multi-movement ambient suite for Shinkoyo, Residuals. The fourth and final movement anticipates that fleeting purgatory between the twilight of one era and the dawn of another. Silky string syntheses tread air peacefully in the panorama until, about halfway through, Sadja's symphony breaks through the fourth wall of the stereo dimension. Though time stands still, aching, every crystalline caress proves temporary once the ending section's repeated electro-acoustic melt floats away gradually in the updraft.
Residuals is out now on Shinkoyo.
