Anyone who likes ethereal, ambient, or good music should purchase this record at their nearest opportunity. A truly beautiful record, with a Markus Guentner collaboration to make it even better. It is the best ambient music I've heard since Spieth's last record Tides. Highly recommended.
Favorite track: Akasha.
With Ousia, Joachim Spieth presents the third long player on his label Affin. The follow-up album to "Tides" creates imaginary spaces, translates ephemeral impressions and condenses them into cinematic soundscapes. The eight pieces illustrate an intense and emotional journey that creates expressive relationships between external and internal perceptions.
In addition, the piece "Mutuus" reveals an enchanting and so far unique collaboration between Markus Guentner and Joachim Spieth, after the two musically shaped Wolfgang Voigt's first release of the compilation series "Pop Ambient" more than 20 years ago.
The album will be available as a double 12 ”, a limited vinyl version including a printed booklet and digital formats.
