A bit reserved and closed in infinite chain of its own loops, this work is similar to a lover or to a flower.
Like a lover’s mood, it’s dreamy and lonely, and its light drone loops weave a canvas which is painted with rare sounds. Like a flower, it’s romantic, impetuous and a bit tragic when stirringly light guitar chords fall on the canvas like drops of blood or petals.
A flower live whole life for weeks, hurrying to grow, to blossom, to present everybody its beauty, to love whole world each second of its life. Each flower is lively and full of love.
This twenty three minutes piece is whole life, a full cycle for a flower – from germination to fading. And somewhere between is bright and brief blossoming when each flower is as beautiful as the love itself.

- Akinesia – Each Flower Is Love (23:00)
or listen online:
Now let’s proceed to one of Akinesia’s albums, which has a very poetic and philosophical title –«Each Flower Is Love», released on DNA Production netlabel. The album is represented by one track, with total duration of almost 23 minutes – it may seem a little bit short, but it is rather enough to realize the beauty of this ambient creation! Swelling like the light of the rising sun, the first sounds are an indistinct drone, but some seconds later you are sure to recognize the succession of liquid loops, which then are supported by a covering fire of a linear atmosperic sound layer. Somewhere between the 8th and the 9th minute you’ll hear the transition to the music of another characteristicts: now the ambience has diminished its frequency – it is like breath, and this ergonomic rhythm brings you into a condition of comfortable suspension. From time to time you can discern some accompanying sounds of strings, which carefully lead the whole somposition to the outcome, when the initial liquid loops are rolling again. This single track seemed to me analogous to the flight of the airplane – with its takeoff, the very flight, and the landing. By the way, at the «landing» of the composition you hear a vague female voice, telling us something about the sense of the whole idea of the album – I can’t recognize the words exactly, but first the voice uses the English language, and then comes to maybe Latin American languages, and maybe French. Then, the track abruptly finishes, leaving a small tail of residual echoes or reverberation. The whole work is quite in accordance with its title – it is a real sound flower, which, in its turn, is love. Truly, if we use the metaphysical approach to the title, we can agree, that in some way the growth of flowers is closely connected with such a high notion, as love; flower, and any other plant – is the earth’s attraction to the sky – it is the realization of their deep feeling, combined with their beauty and openness. So, make some observations of love in the nature with Akinesia’s album.
