First studio album by this isolated creation from eastern Serbia landscape. Hypnotic dark ambient sounds strongly
inspired by mysterious Old Mountain. The band Nothingness comes from the darkest abyss of the mind. The Misty Mountain
album is dedicated to Stara Planina (Old Mountain). Hypnotic atmosphere makes an all together telepathic creation
of thoughts and emotions. A dark and abandoned soundscape, which would draw many dark ambient fan into is grisp.
Focusing the worlds beyond the veil, either deep in history, or a matter of footsteps away, hidden in a dark realm.
Essentially written as part of a musical series called Music For Electronic Minds, each track in this album attempted to carry along intently a specific mood. Water-based music, forest-based music, macro-life music, like Boards of Canada’s resonance – simple ideas that took all those far out, less inviting, explorations into far more personal and focused pieces. Although Unumpentium was meant for the New Age market, it ventures far outside the genre.
Drum machines, saxophones, electric pads, and all sorts of assorted mallet percussion find ways to make their presence felt in what really is supposed to be a set of percolating “floating” synthesizer music. Not entirely perfect – but what is? – it does have so much to offer as another important piece in this whole structure of electronic noise with ambient music we’re uncovering (with our Western ears) piecemeal.
