The soundscapes are very raw, blurred and distorted at the same time, what makes them sounding warm and catchy even if there is no straight structure. Asking Monocube about the intention of the album, he explains that the idea behind the tracks is based on “private associations, memories, atmospheres, vibes of beloved cities, vibe of the night, twilight and dawn times, feelings, emotions…”.

 

“Blue Dusk /// Red Dawn” is part of an concept by Monocube, consisting by the album and a photobook concentrating on the syzygy between people and nature. The intention behind this work is about human reflections in nature, architecture, music and art. The album is the soundtrack for the book and the book illustrates the music.

One thought on “MD 017: MONOCUBE – BLUE DUSK /// RED DAWN

  1. Hypnotic album that leads you through the mysteries of one’s consciousness, revealing shadows and dimensions in sensations. Tenderness shaped by alienation in the dim light of a sorrow landscape brings the dark delight to the listener. You can listen to this album in a loop all day long enjoying the atmosphere without noticing the time flow.
    Blue Madrid absorbs your attention, and makes it follow the music stream, that further gets caught into the Red Moscow rhythms.The Sea Salt escalates emotional tensions, to let them be released in peace in the last part – The Sun That Never Was.
    Definitely a piece of music to dive into!
