"This is quite a pleasant head-trip on a slow August
evening" [Frans De Ward, Vital Weekly]
Hot on the heels of his last record in June,Keith Downey aka No Mask Effect delivers his third album of 2016. Downey's ability to merge Ambient Soundscapes interwoven with spoken word samples and environmental ambience have set up the artist as one to watch in the ambient scene.
The haunting opener 'Nothing Out There' features choice spoken word snippets which are mixed with astronomy inspired sounds befitting any great Sci-Fi movie soundtrack. The album continues with a young woman's thoughts on the city life of 'Denver' and the tranquility of the Colorado countryside that she longs to experience.
Mid way through the album the track 'Sleeping Shadows' is the artists own interpretation of Ambient Classical music. Emotional strings gently flow in and out creating a melancholy tone. 'Spork' features a distorted robotic voice that is barely audible but manages to create a dark atmosphere.
