Reflection « The Art of Magic »

Reflection is the dark prog-psy project of Gibb Tartaris, a music teacher from Canberra, the Australian federal capital.

The Art of Magic is the autobiographical tale of a “mathemagician” on a journey to discover frequencies and wavelengths infused with a perfect balance of mathematical and magical harmonies. In essence, this album attempts to use the power of mathematics to trick people the way a magician would.
The EP The Art of Magic was released on 1st of August in 2014 by Glitchy.Tonic.Records under a Creative Commons license. While released for free, you may want to support the artist and buy the album from Bandpage.

Musically it’s a somewhat subdued progressive psytrance with nice sound effects - I guess being subdued with sound effects is what all the sites call the zenonesque bit of progressive trance. I personally prefer my psy with a bit more oomph because at an average of eight minutes a track appears to have never gone off the ground but still, it’s nice and maybe never going boom is a paradox worthy of Zenon of Elea.
