More lively "Nuvole di Palissandro" beats beneath beautiful enveloping strata of a synth, that is warmer and flutier, in a sound ambiance just as much mysterious. We have the vague impression of being buried in a cave stuffed with thick morphic clouds. Doubtless the most melodious title of ďCirco DivinoĒ. "Sorinel" bathes in a sonorous unreality with heavy pulsations of which the accelerated pulse is beating around furtive whispers and the somber oscillations of a metallic synth, plunging the listener into a delicious sound paranoia. A little bit as on "Lost Fractales", the tempo is broken and oscillates under crystalline prisms and notes of guitars emerging out of a sinister sound swamp where the dispersed voices of India Czajkowska glide towards a soft insanity which wiggles under the pulsations and the intense frantic suctions of a synth to muddy tones. As its naming indicates it "Electrostatic Forest" is gobbled up by tones of twinkling prisms, shaping an electrostatism spectral aura in a cave filled by countless crystal droplets. Itís without a doubt the quietest track of Parallel Worlds' last musical madness. "Slide of Grace" concludes Circo Divino in the same way that "Lost Fractales" had started it. Itís a long arrhythmic track where the tempo remains indecisive and finds its assizes beneath these strange percussion/pulsations which scatter the rhythmic trail of Circo Divino. The ambiance is always so twisted with its tones of glasses which merge to the heavy drones with sustained reverberations, mixing the modular breaths of a sometimes harmonious and sometimes abstracted synth that hovers in an always heterogeneous universe whose harmonies glean here and there within the reach of intuitive ears.
In the experimental ambient genre, Circo Divino remains what is made of better! Bakis Sirros, Alio Die and India Czajkowska unite their experimental sound perceptions to offer another kind of ambient music. An atmospheric music where the rhythm gets play by the intensity of the modulations and the enchantment of countless sonority which invariably draw strange arcs and modulations that hook the hearing and command new listening. Itís a whole fascinating musical world unique to Bakis Sirros' perseverance and audacity for his constant quest for new tones and of which the fusion with the master of drones that is Alio Die can only give surprising results. Circo Divino is an album at the measure of its musical fascination for fans of sound and musical experiments because beyond all these perceptions, the approach of Parallel Worlds remains inexplicably harmonious. -Sylvain Lupari
