Flexagon the ambientwave project from Guernsey released the single The Gift on the 4th.
As always, the music, reflects of a spacious and mind-boggling universe enticing the listener in to its cavernous spaces to explore the fractals of expanding electronica.
The Gift (available on bandcamp) refers to a musical instrument – a toombi – which was won in a raffle and gifted to Flexagon.
With no previous experience of the one stringed instrument, Flexagon, has taken the unusual option of using a bow to deliver a track in which the distinctive string can be readily identified, muted though it is under the rich tapestry of hypnotic synthesis, to create a just over eight minutes composition which holds the listener transfixed.
