Yawning Druid Wow. I was really unprepared for how near-perfect this album would be. Water textures are one of my favorite ambient additions, but they need to be done carefully and tastefully. Music For Sleep shows a deep understanding of the relationship between textures and drones on this release. A meditative and introspective ambient release I haven't been able to turn off.

Visual Complexity "Waterforms" is a 60 minute ambient song that places you at the beach or at a river while you sleep or listen along. Music For Sleep has had a lot of ambient masterpieces and this isn't a exception. Thanks for another great release Music For Sleep!

"Waterforms", a one hour long-form composition mixes harmonic brilliance with subtle drones over the relaxing qualities of experiments into a deep water exploration. Melodic harmony occurs over this piece of eerie, yet relaxing sense of music for sleep. A sense of mystery will teleport the listener to a shore far away. After all, traveling doesn't need to be done via car, plane, or boat...

Fa piacere ritrovare il progetto solista di Andrea Porcu dedicato alla composizione ambientale di lunga durata sull’etichetta specializzata Shimmering Moods, le cui produzioni limitate propongono spesso artisti al di fuori dagli abituali circuiti realizzativi. Tra questi rientra senz’altro il musicista sardo, da tempo di stanza a Berlino, che in Music For Sleep concentra appunto il profilo più narcolettico e dilatato della sua tavolozza sonora.

“Waterforms” la presenta nella sua consistenza liquida, appunto, in una traccia unica lunga un’ora, nel corso della quale Porcu racchiude un’esplorazione di tutti gli stati dell’acqua, cristallizzata in schegge taglienti o sublimata in vapori impalpabili. Il suono di “Waterforms” segue tale evoluzione secondo stadi di trasformazione graduali e accuratamente dettagliati, sotto forma di un flusso di drone unitario ma mutevole, che non manca di vibrazioni e increspature sature.

Piuttosto che induttiva degli stati narcolettici al quale la denominazione del progetto appare votata, “Waterforms” propone un’esperienza d’ascolto senz’altro quietamente riflessiva, ma anche tale da catalizzare l’attenzione, in una tangibile astrazione della durata di un’ora.
(Words by Raffaello Russo - Music Won't Save You)

"This longform piece explores the different moods conjured by varying water sources. After a mellow twenty minutes of melodic loops and gentle splashes, things become darker and more claustrophobic. It’s as if the listener is being submerged and immersed in a flood of drones that become thicker and more inescapable as the track progresses. Other found sounds float to the surface like bubbles and at the midway point the frequencies lighten to reveal delicate tones.
A persistent tone repeats throughout the entire piece, guiding the listener into the depths and steering the way. The final part of the journey is illuminated by warmer bass notes, keeping us afloat until the end. Composed to be enjoyed both through headphones or speakers, Waterforms is a sound bath that rewards patient listening.."
