4 stars As soon as 16 seconds pass by , the immediate sense of entering Oophoi's musical kingdom and knowing beforehand of his acute ability to create one of a kind, enticing sonic spaces , well, you know you are in for an "earthly/cosmic" ride.

Long gone Gianluigi Gasparetti (1958 / 2013), a.k.a. Oophoi was a meticulous performer, his low-keyed persona helped to mantain his real deal as an out of the radar, extraordinary electronic musician, but, above all, it helped him to find his true voice among these endless oceans of electronic music, thus his musical language, as in all great artists, is unique.

"Spirals of Time", 1998, is a long and deep , 2 cd , journey. Resembling in fact a physical journey, due to its field recordings, which provide a true sonic/physical sensation of actually gliding through these strange but, dream like, recognizable places. This project flows along a religious like primitive spirituality in a slow paced and transparent motion, through its wide open, ever changing, weather/places' atmospheres.

Obviously, its ground breaking attibutes, rely on this musician's composition abilities and of course the compromise of listeners, who do enjoy this kind of abstract, meditative and non-urban dronescapes.

****4 PA stars in the Progressive Electronic universe.
