MAX ANANYEV | Water Atlas (Serein) – CD
Serein may not be the most prolific label in the field (this is their second title for 2018), but when they release a new title you can be sure it is worth checking out.
They combine quality control with a broad-minded view which means that each release bears new surprises and spans different genres.
Water Atlas – Max Ananyev‘s first full album for Serein (his earlier two albums Communication and The Way To The Ocean were released by Preserved Sound) – for instance, can be labelled as an ‘ambient’ album for most part of it. But it breaks away from the usual constrictions of the genre by using acoustic instruments in a somewhat more ‘jazzy’ setting. A refreshing sound, different without breaking the atmosphere.
On Water Atlas, Max Ananyev aims to take you to mysterious places hidden deep in your own imagination.
