Hecq - Night Falls

Hecq - Night FallsThose who are fond of Ben Lucas Boysen (aka Hecq) have probably got used to his style of working - complicated, twisting rhythmical constructions brightly demonstrating the triumph of technologies in contemporary electronic music.
Changes in the musician's mind could be heard at the end of 2007 when net-release Infinite Rounds took place. This release was lack of pseudonym (edition with original name of the author) as well as of rhythmical section (with the exception of central track).

Nevertheless the new album of this author turned to be unexpectable - the musician turned straight from energetic idm to deep and very gloomy ambient sound.
Night Falls turns off the light in your room transforming it into a ship which slowly moves along endless dark corridors of reverberated string instruments, synthesized pads and samples of choir. Also various sound elements are extremely harmoniously integrated into composition of the album, they make each part of the album unforgettable. For example, subtle hi-tech glitch effects in track "Dis", airy and romantic piano sound in quiet, exciting "Bending Time" or industrial field recordings in "Giants". Night Falls widens the space round us and makes us feel free about our thoughts and emotions: from light sadness and thoughtful staring into some emptiness to inexplicable alarm and anxiety.
Hecq has obviously gained a new level - music lost a great amount of difficult effects and rhythmical constructions but received a charge of feelings and emotions, ability to penetrate into soul's depths of a listener, to the remotest corners of his consciousness.
