Occurrences In Rain – Climbing Ladders Into Falling Objects


It is great, that nowadays creating music became available to lots of people, who truly are capable and like to write it. More means of creating, recording and extracting of sounds are opened for us. And I’m glad, that the project Occurrences In Rain used this oportunity. Now, we shall proceed to its fresh album, called “Climbing Ladders Into Falling Objects” – a very abstract title, which makes us imagine some kind of a Sisyphus, who tries to climb higher, but as the top of the ladder is tending down, he stays on the same place. The title track, which occurs to be the first one, is represented by widespread mild drone, presumably of string character, with slight changes in its run, but in spite of this minimalism, the track exposes rather picturesque mindscapes, giving a start to a meditative listening, conjugated with deep thoughts. The next track, “Suppressed Panic Upon Approaching The Kuiper Belt”, suggests, that here the author narrates about a long travel in space. As in the case with the albums of the project Kalte, here I also had to consult the Internet regarding the Kuiper Belt, which appeared to be a large asteroid belt beyond the Neptune orbit, so I clearly understood, why the “suppressed panic” should come while approaching this region of cosmos, because asteroid clusters are no good when flying on a space ship. The whole track is of low-toned drone, having some oscillations and damped slow pulsation; at the end of it you can hear a distant melody, with blurred structure and irregular composition – but it is evident, that it symbolizes relief – maybe the passing through the Kuiper Belt finished without any loss. The next track, with the title “As Velocity Increased Time Slowed Then Passed In Reverse”, with its swelling rush of a bass drone, tells us another part of this voyage, when the wanderers came across some phenomena, emerging at a speed of light, and some new phenomena, up to now unknown to the modern science. This album is like a science-fiction story or even a novel with a plot, which, however, assumes freedom for a listener’s imagination. Thus, I won’t decipher the rest of it, because everyone must get his own story. Anyway, this is a very nice and educative album for an ambient lover – so, enjoy it!

Enjoy this release on Bandcamp!
