SIMON SCOTT "Below Sea Level" (2012)

Creating ambient music may seems easy, just some floating music with minimal synth background. But creating good ambient music that almost puts you in Trance, makes you close your eyes and makes your forget about everything...that gift is not given to everybody.  Simon Scott has that gift and is a talented ambient creator. He makes me think of my favorite Gods of ambient; Harold Budd and Robin Guthrie with the addition of Minimal and Glitch elements. Simon Scott is a multi-instrumentist from Cambridge who spent two years capturing natural environnement sounds which you will hear all through the album; natural, loop or sequenced. These 7 "Sealevel" parts are a great voyage to an unknown world. Masterpiece.
