10th Anniversary 2CD edition | Projekt re-releases vidnaObmana’s ultimate fan favorite ambient work with a bonus disc: the entire album performed by Oregon’s Dreams in Exile.
This 1996 album was a high point of vidnaObmana’s early compositional style, presenting a minimal and serene flow utilizing sparse piano lines which intermingle with drifting keyboard loops and organic rainstick sounds. There is an overall harmonic unity on these 8 pieces, stripping dense walls back to reveal a slowly changing sound configuration. The 2nd disc is a complete re-creation of the original on traditional instruments. Re-experience the everlasting melancholy of the River of Appearance on this exceptional 10th anniversary release.
Alternative Press “Atmospheric pieces from the Belgian composer. At times, sparse, pretty piano lines float over shimmering walls of electronics, evoking a melancholic yet romantic feeling. At other moments, cyclical melodies interweave with each other in a slowly moving stream of sound which stirs the imagination. The talented vidnaObmana continues to evolve and refine his music, now draping his spacey aural atmospheres with more defined melodies.”
WEFT Epiphanies Radio “Nothing in Vidna’s previous releases will prepare you for the glories, the passion, and the transcendental beauties of this release. This is a crowning achievement; in the heavenly, soaring, shimmering, meditative vein. This is a must-have release for all lovers of space and ambient music.”
2CD in jewel box.
Kirk of DiE writes: “Corey and I have always been fans of the nearly lost art of albums. Between us, we can think of at least a dozen complete albums in which each melody, inflection, and subtle quirk are etched completely in our minds and memories. the River of Appearance is one of these. The first track I heard from the River of Appearance was in 1996 while driving on the deserted Palisades Parkway at 4:00 am. I was spinning around the radio dial when I suddenly heard a distant, unearthly moan that seemed to originate somewhere outside my car – it was “Ephemeral vision.” Four years later, vidnaObmana invited us to record River ourselves. The compositions were scored using an invented technique which involved drawing visual navigational charts of each piece. With the help of a children’s choir, a cellist, and two horn players, the River was diverted into a different channel – one in the realm of Dreams in Exile.”
