Language of the Ancients by S1gnsOfL1fe adds true form to ambient music. As broadcasted, it leads in with intention and grace. Breaking the mold of what time breaks should be allowed and includes a kaleidoscope of affection, as each song sinks into the next batch. With a total time of over 50 minutes, you stop counting which track is which; you don’t even become bothered about it. Because in the symmetrical ambient world, it’s about how long you can keep your mind trance, breathing into the sounds and beats that play along as this music gives you ethereal visions. Maybe it’s not as much as a surprise from Chris Bryant because coming from the Bay Area in California, he was born with ease in his veins. As Bryant recently signed to Arecibo Records, he also works the ambient website ambientonline.org along with creating various projects in the ambient atmosphere.
To go even deeper, the explanation Bryant has given out for this album is the give or take of natural substance and ecosystem development—society based on ourselves and the consumption of what we should admire—giving biology, chemical response and a harmonic astronomy to the existence we call ‘living every day.’ Alone that takes the stronghold of the music so much further, as you listen and delve deeper into the soundscape that presents the ideas into your subconscious, how much further can we plan to escape? This is a very real interruption of motion in progress, so take the time to settle down and listen.
