Marsen Jules Les Fleurs
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: City Centre Offices
In Einstein's Dreams, physicist Alan Lightman describes a world where time is circular, each moment lived over and over; and another where time stops, bittersweet at the center. Ambient composer Marsen Jules uses the science of sampling and editing to similarly convey the hypnotic beauty and dual chronology of the natural world. 2005's Herbstlaub evoked autumn, and here, sun-washed moments seek infinity through beatless loops and waves. Bell tones, vibraphone hums, and fingers sliding on fret boards are suspended and layered mid-air in the gorgeous "La Digitale Pourpre" and "Anemone." Closer "Aeillet En Delta" is a 15-minute tease of tones that guarantees gorgeous dreams.
