Cameron Mizell: The Edge of Visibility

Jim Olin By

Sign in to view read count
How the mind liberally generates artistic transcendence is a phenomenal concept, and creating music is a customary form to express the ethereal otherworldliness of what is beyond the mundane. Guitarist Cameron Mizell's fearless spirit travels to a different cosmos with his album The Edge of Visibility. Mizell undauntedly rambles the peripheries of his imagination.

The album epitomizes a vast and inventive sonic encounter, an unconventional plunge into subliminal escape and mood-altering cognizance. The melodic and stirring "These Sheets" has a meditative current. The upshot is a peripatetic mind engrossed with nostalgia. Tripping down memory lane and roving through bottled-up mishaps are some of the knitted effects. The tuneful guitar on "A Second Trapeze" is a solid, soothing cut that substantiates Mizell's razor-sharp skillfulness. The freezing impression displays a sequence of historical imagery. Ruminating over discernibility and fancy interpretations elicits awakening, especially with the rich and reassuring guitar playing. "Everyone Has Blind Spots" hypnotizes a pensive soul. The introspective sound generates a disconsolate touch yet brushes it with an idyllic appeal, intensifying the emotions with highlighted recollections.

With its astrophysical atmosphere, "Rooster Tail" is a complex, eccentrically good and commendable track. It enigmatically gyrates the mind with its dark, ambiguous turns. There is a tremendous exhibition of menacing guitar flow electrifying both the sensible and the subconscious level. "Rooster Tail" is a challenging composition that is elevating and unsettling in its serenest form.

Film graphics, rubbles of musings, suppressed recalls, and yearned memoirs embody The Edge of Visibility. Improvisational jazz tinted with progressive rock and avant-garde creativity, this album establishes an experimental expedition. Mizell's daring approach lets the mind trek into an effervescent foray of conjectural, physical, and psychedelic ether. Mizell superbly presents high technical proficiency, artistry, and melodic skills in this praiseworthy and tastefully hypnotic collection.
