Ramifications, by Gora Sou
Orange Milk Records of Columbus Ohio never fails to bring some supreme goodies to the table, and this time around is no dissapointment. Ramifications is a phenomenal 8-track project from Gora Sou, soaring to melodic heights and churning depths. Sit back and close your eyes, let the inspiration flow into you…
Favorite Track: 3. Fregata
Germany’s Marc Übel, aka Gora Sou, follows up his fantastic Living XXL album with Ramifications, an increasingly composed and masterful hybrid of ethereal synth abstraction and new MIDI sounds. The music is direct and effortless, seeming to arrive fully formed with few overdubs, even if we know that not to be true. In fact each instance of ambiance, rhythmic movement, and pure sound texture is labored over in a conscious effort to emphasize arrangement. According to the artist, Ramifications is about dealing with problems and changes and accepting them as something constructive, opposed to looking back all the time.
