carbon based lifeforms: interloper
sweden's carbon-based lifeforms is a real fresh breath in the arena of ambient electronic music. true, none of the sounds or effects used are original - in fact, the carbon based lifeforms sound is uncannily reminiscent of 90s amient electronica acts such as b12, spacetime continuum and higher intelligence agency. carbon based lifeforms doesn't copy this sound and try to pass it off as their own but instead honours it by expanding and developing it in accordance with their individual touches and updated technology. moreover, the manner in which these same aural textures are recycled, reintroduced, reused, and presented anew is cutting-edge and contribue to a bold yet calming feel that encourages active listening. there is a lot of ambient electronic music out there that is epic and there is a good deal of ambient electronic music available that is tranquil but the way that carbon based lifeforms combine epic with relaxing go a long way to creating a rare gem indeed.
