tullwr Amazing album from Eluvium - so many really beautiful, haunting compositions it's difficult to choose a favorite. Depends on my mood - today it is "Rorschach Pavan". I won't presume to know the artists intent, but for me the album is a perfect balance of the cerebral and the sublime! Thank you MRC for this amazing work! Favorite track: Rorschach Pavan.

nofatclips 4th listen: it keeps you in an eternally undecidable dilemma between wanting to stay in the current soundscape and yearning for what comes next.

3rd listen: A very interesting listening, from concept to execution.

1st/2nd listen: it was too long ago... Favorite track: Regenerative Being.

MoreReverb This is just so good. I wish I could find the words to accurately describe the perfection. Favorite track: Fugue State.

about

Cognitive dissonance is, at this point, an everyday part of modern society. The difference between belief and reality is blurrier than ever, and there is often sufficient manipulation to both so as to make the distinction intentionally unclear. The source of those manipulations can either be external, or deceptively internal.

False Readings On is the new album from renowned experimental composer, Eluvium. Its creation was originally inspired by themes of cognitive dissonance in modern society. By its conclusion it had become a mirror rather than a magnifying glass, evolving into an hour-long meditation on self-doubt, anxiety, and separation from one's self.

There is an emotional lucidity and melodic ingenuity to Eluvium's music that has made him increasingly stand out from the sea of ambient artists that his earlier albums no doubt helped inspire. Sounding like an orchestra ceaselessly performing even as it sinks beneath an ocean of distortions and tape noise – with the occasional operatic voice piercing the surface – False Readings On is assuredly the most daring, dynamic, and distinct album of his luminous career.
