Continuing on the road cleared of rhythms and sequences started on Behind the Shadows, Javi Canovas offers to his fans another album of pure ambient EM. Aureal flows with a soft astral limpidity on 13 tracks where he brings the listener to the borders of a shady cosmos where slow sonorous irruptions are going along Berber poetic odes and waves of morphic synths.
Open Flux opens this work of cerebral serenity with a soft wave of synth which glides of a linear movement where fine impulses draw a celestial harmony. Molded of hybrid sonorities, synth strata are entwining in a slow conceptual journey as in the title track which floats rolled up of smooth nasal waves in sinuous elongate movements. Perception offers an intro closer to Tangerine Dreams Stratosfear years with guitar notes that roam in a multiplicity of morphic strata. Some nice sleepy surges of a synth with padded waves which recover notes of guitars lost in a cosmic desert where we can hear, if the imagination lends itself to it, light breezes of harmonica. Cosmic and soft, Perception is the ideal solitude journeyman to contemplate stars. Threatening synth breezes plunge Aeternus intro into a universe tinted with mysticism both spectral and intersidereal. Synth layers are floating and entwining in a slow cosmic ballet quite as in Empty Memory and its skinny and floating line of synths. Downfall presents beautiful and slow movements of synth tinted with a beautiful poetico-astral approach. It is a nice track la Steve Roach quite as the moving Fractal Dimension and Aureal II with its tribal fragrances so unique to the American synth player during its Australian journeys.
Echoes from the Dryland is soft and odd cosmic Berber ode with a synth filled of puny breezes which sing under delicate layers to captivating reverberations. This is a suave and poetic track with a cosmic tribal mood quite as the surprising Age of Irreality. Limpid Aureal III floats around its cosmic waves and a quixotic harp which unwinds its notes in a slow spiral. After the oblong atonal light wind of Aureal IV, Aureal V concludes this ambient epic with a track full of emotionalism where soft synth layers are coiling up in a beautiful harmony-cosmic fusion. Its soft, tender and oniric, quite as the morphic entity that is Aureal; a cosmic journey in the depths of its own introspection.
