Arp - In The Light
Alexis Georgopoulos’ music has been called “Cosmic Minimalism” by label spin-meisters and he himself as referred to it as “Natural Electronic Music.” Yet, Arp has made music that, while referencing the work of ambient heroes and inspiring others to run to the thesaurus for adjectives, stands on its own as music that creates its own unique aural environments, and in the process inspires some visual havens too.
Georgopoulos has worked with The Alps as well as with Tussle, bands that carved some of the same atmospheric dreamscapes. On this, his first solo release, he assembles warm worlds, and gentle, throbbing invitations to move through them. Recalling Brian Eno or anyone German who pops into your head when you think electronic drone, “Fireflies On The Water,” “Premonition Of The Sculptor Steiner” and others remain with you after a few spins, as reminders to stop and rest, as nudges to keep on moving. Tow of the seven songs on “In Light” are called “Potentialities,” and that is a word to describe the entire set: each track is complete in and of itself, but feels like it could just keep going, longer and deeper.
