Florida composer Nizco offers lengthy themes that are alternately brooding and calming, with pacing that starts slow and skillfully transitions to a faster and more powerful profile that’s punctuated by a series of cymbal shimmers along the way. Both “Trio” and “Speed Friending” incorporate piano and synths and are distinctive for featuring robotic-sounding voices––one female, one male––that make socio-political statements of empowerment. The atmospheric “Identity” emits a steady celestial swirl countered by the tolling of light, airy, meditative bells. At the end of the day, we appreciate Nizco’s competent recordings but wish they presented us with an experience we haven’t heard before.
