Vidna Obmana: Memories Compiled2 This European ambient synths composer is easily one of the best out there. I have heard many a so-called “ambient” work that just left me flat-eared and ennui-laden, reaching for the remote to switch discs. Not so for Obmana’s creations. They light-shimmer, wave-sparkle, synths-ing, heart-echo, and brain-drone just exactly the right mix of off-world and terrestrial brilliance. I must mention folks like Steve Roach, Jeff Johnson, Jeff Greinke, Richard Bone, Harold Budd, and Brain Eno. Obmana is influenced by or mirrors the best of these artists.

This release is freshly sequenced and remastered earlier works of Obmana. Disc One is dubbed Near the Flogging Landscape and disc Two is tagged Refined on Gentle Clouds. They cover an original recording period of 1989 to 1991. Experience a very cohesive feel and flow from disc to disc and hear a wide range of soundcolor and subdued sonic texturing.

Put this collection on, be relaxed, and travel inner dimensions of wonder and vision. Many “soul-travel/stress-reduction” moments within, an inspired offering.
