Alister Flint – Uchuu [SLNT015]

tagged with ,

"Music (...) gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of (...) all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form..” 'Uchuu' is a Japanese word for universe. It is about acceleration and regeneration. The album is born a year ago, following a collaborative project to put in music some of the latest scientific facts. However, 'Uchuu' is not about space and cosmos only, but about what surrounds us, and what makes us human. As we are all part of this acceleration and regeneration process, just as much as we are all influenced by it. Sometimes, it's beauty. Sometimes, it gets frightening, unsettling at least. 'Uchuu' is all that, and more, I hope.
