Review: Deaf Center – Owl Splinters

Label: Type
Catalog No: TYPE080

The musical journey of Deaf Center is very dark and beautiful. This intricate contrast is nothing new in the world of Ambient music, or Modern Classical for that matter. Not every artist has to do something new and radical in order to be good. What makes Deaf Center unique is the fine balance between Dark Ambient soundscapes that infiltrate your psyche with despair and breathtaking acoustic compositions.

When these two mix and sometimes switch places, swells from the ocean rise and rain down upon the lost souls on this puny sphere floating aimlessly in a blank void. Owl Splinters is a good expression of the variations found in this life. From a range of emotions and feelings, to vast spectrums of light and color, what we experience on this plane of existence is awe-inspiring. The most amazing thing is we have only explored the tip of the iceberg. There is still so much to encounter. The yin and yang of life come together in full force in this release.
