New Music Critique: Splimis


The welcoming, positive and sometimes heavenly vibes of these instrumentals by Splimis display his confident handle on arrangements that vary in pace and dynamics, but always maintain threads and nimble beats that guide the listener from beginning to end. There’s strong soundtrack/videogame potential here. Best is “Gates” which with its catchy bell-like keyboard motif, dynamic pauses and underlying charm helps it come off like a toy symphony. “Midori” deploys a placid, angelic choir effect while “Snowflake” is a floating, vaguely weightless glide that seems to describe a journey propelled by surging synths and occasional updrafts of energy––perfect for a surf or outer space documentary.
