Amaranthine Forest is the upcoming release from the Ambient Deep House artist Blanka Barbara. Through her previous releases, it is apparent that she an artist who possesses a uniquely cinematic and naturally organic approach to creating her richly textured sound. Yet her latest composition demonstrates her ability to dig deep into nature to find her distinctive patterns and loops which somehow carry as much transience as they pulsate euphoria.
From samples of birdsong, to sounds so sonic they’d be right at home in the Dr Who soundtrack Amaranthine Forest has it all. And the synergy between the acoustic elements and electronic effect is something that you’re going to have to immerse yourself into to truly appreciate the mesmeric power of Amaranthine Forest.
You’ll have to wait a little longer for the release of Amaranthine Forest, but you can check out some of the up and coming artist’s earlier releases by heading over to her official website.
