5 stars A metamorphical symphony of industrial indo/raga electronics.

Rapoon´s 2014 album "Conduits And Estuaries" is a 43+ minutes long, single composition, divided in six movements or sections, connected throughly.

The symphonic reference not only applies to its structure, parts of it movements do contain symphonic passages with its inherent instrumentation (or emulators). All of Rapoon's musical learnings, findings, goings and comings, led eventually to a unique self-owned musical language.

As always in his works, slow-paced does not mean sticking to a single point or structure, be it riff or melody. As always his songwriting is dynamic, constantly creative, and on this one especially, totally refined.

In "Conduits And Estuaries" once you let yourself go, it does not let you go away. It is indo/raga, as it is "industrial", as it is a "waterfall", to then turn into a mass, or a symphony, and then into a dance, and then into the obscure, as into the light, and into a hundred worlds, by the minute..... and you are inside!

One of the most attractive and perfectly achieved attributes this album holds, is the perfect juxtapositioning of highly opposite styles without becoming "decadent". Opposite to that, his music proposal sounds fresh as new, and above everything else, marks a unique tendency, which eventually, as in Art hystory, could become a style. And that my friends is the "mark" of geniuses! In any field of action.

*****5 "Flawless, hypnotic, haunting, attractive, highly creative and UNIQUE, Progressive Electronic music" PA stars.

One for all!
